Ventura continues to try to drain the Ojai Valley and Casitas Municipal Water District. This time to fund its State Water connection. Why should Ojai ratepayers pay millions for a project that brings no actual water? Ventura offers only “In-Lieu” water.


Is it coincidence Ventura wants us to pay $10 million, the same amount they’ve spent on Walnut Creek lawyers to sue us? Thanks to the four directors at CMWD who voted against the rotten deal this week; the OVN hopes that president of the board, Brian Brennan, can be convinced to vote in favor of the Ojai Valley in the future.
