Water Crisis & Drought

Forum on Ventura County’s Water Crisis and CA Drought

Thursday, September 8, 2022

California's current drought conditions underscore the need to responsibly manage our water supply. As conditions worsen, it is critical that we work together to implement effective water conservation practices and establish long-term water sustainability solutions.

On September 8, 2022, I hosted a Forum on Ventura County's Water Crisis and CA Drought in partnership with Senator Monique Limón, the County of Ventura, and local water experts. The event presented information on the threats of the extreme drought conditions our state is facing and the impacts it will have in our communities. We discussed state and local agencies' response to build water resiliency and the steps you can take to conserve water.
