Stormwater project gets under way in Meiners Oaks

08202015 SB MO Bioswale
The county of Ventura and Ojai Valley Land Conservancy have teamed to secure state grants to help improve the cleanliness of Meiners Oaks’ stormwater. In the field between Meiners Oaks Elementary School and The Ranch House, Shaw Contracting began work this week on a bio-filtration vegetated swale and filters that will remove trash, sediment, bacteria and nutrients from the stormwater that flows into the Ventura River from approximately 40 percent of the community of Meiners Oaks. Construction is expected to last through October. (Ojai Valley News photo by Sarah Bourscheid)
