Ojai Cam

OUR OJAI CAM

 Our Ojai cam is the latest victim in the wake of the July 2014 water main break that flooded the Ojai Playhouse and Jester. The building's owner, who has donated the spot for the camera and its related equipment for many years, shut off the utilities needed to operate the camera pending a resolution of his effort to get Golden State Water Company to pay for the needed repairs. We appreciate your patience as we look for a suitable temporary location.
