Did you ever wonder how your city processes your water – or where that water goes when it goes down the drain?
The City of Oxnard is pleased to provide free tours of our water facilities. On the tours, you’ll learn how your water is mixed, how it’s treated, and what happens to everything that goes down the drain in homes and businesses. Meet staff, ask questions, and get an inside peek into the facilities that make Oxnard’s water system work.
The City of Oxnard has three main water facilities:
- Desalter Facility – where groundwater is run through desalination and prepared for mixing with other water sources.
- Advanced Water Purification Facility – an advanced water purification facility that recycles water that would otherwise be lost to the ocean.
- Wastewater Treatment Plant – where liquids and solids are separated and water is purified before being returned to the water cycle.
Tours are coming in 2020, so check back soon to view posted dates!
Private tours are available for schools and other educational programs, by appointment only. To schedule a tour, please call (805) 385-8154.
