The City of Ventura

The City of Ventura and Ventura Water implemented a demonstration-scale advanced water purification facility in Ventura, California in 2015. A decade of comprehensive evaluations, studies, and piloting have allowed local leaders to considered many forward-thinking solutions to Ventura’s water problem. Ultimately, this work led to the VenturaWaterPure Program. VenturaWaterPure will recover, treat and reuse water that is currently discharged into the Santa Clara River Estuary, creating a locally-owned, drought-resilient water source that isn’t dependent on rainfall. VenturaWaterPure will be fully implemented in 2030.
