Despite it currently being California’s rainy season, Ventura County is in an exceptional drought and will need more than the few rainy days to improve our water infrastructure.
In late November, VCPWA Agency Director Jeff Pratt, Wastewater Superintendent August Godinez, and Deputy Director Scott Meckstroth, joined other local water experts on KCLU Radio’s newest podcast The One Oh One.
As The One Oh One producer Michelle Loxton interviewed Pratt and Dan Drugan, Manager of Resources at Calleguas Municipal Water District, it became clear that not only was drought on everyone’s minds, but so were important reclamation efforts – like those being done at VCPWA’s Moorpark Reclamation Facility. Godinez explained how water is saved as it goes through the reclamation process, “any time you take a shower, or any time water goes down the sink, that water is coming to us so we’re not wasting anything.”
Listen to The One Oh One podcast episode titled: ‘What exceptional drought is doing to Ventura County’s water supply’ here: www.kclu.org/theoneohone/episode4/exceptionaldrought to learn how this water is recycled and of course, be very proud of the innovations from every department of VCPWA, in this case, Water and Sanitation.
