The Groundwater Section has been providing groundwater information (i.e. water levels, water quality) along with well construction data to the public for more than 40 years, and will continue to improve such service as much as possible. In addition, we gather data related to groundwater levels and quality by sampling and measuring existing wells on a routine basis. Such activities help us understand and track vital water resources to address any potential concerns before they become problems. New and existing information is recorded, coordinated, and included in topical studies.
The Ventura County Groundwater Section addresses all water supply sources including groundwater, surface flows, imported and reclaimed water, as well as alternative resources such as conjunctive use and desalination. Water management programs include drought planning, governmental quality compliance, and several water conservation programs.
