Recycled Water Expansion
|Of all the possible solutions to increasing our local water
supply, recycled water is the most promising because the more recycled water is
used for irrigation, the less drinking water is needed for that purpose. This
frees up our more expensive potable water supply to be used for drinking water
and indoor use.
Camrosa is a leader in Recycled Water in Ventura
, providing the
necessary treatment and distribution system for recycled water that can be
safely used for all non-potable uses. Camrosa is already using recycled water
and non-potable surface water diverted from Conejo Creek in a number of places
Produced by the Camrosa Water
Reclamation Facility which was built in 1997, the reclaimed, disinfected water
is tested daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly and annually as required by the
Department of Health Services. Use of recycled water
reduces agricultural and irrigation demand on limited drinking water supplies –
and there is plenty of room for further development and use of this available
and economical resource.

- Agricultural Irrigation
- State Channel Islands Landscaping
- Residential Landscape - University Glen, Wildwood Estates and Camelot
of the infrastructure needed to transport this resource to more areas within the
district will provide a drought-proof and reliable source of local water.
Camrosa is therefore committed to building the necessary infrastructure to
distribute the water throughout additional areas of the district and preserve
the use of drinking water for indoor and drinking usage.
