Building water resilience is a top priority at UWCD, which is why the District works to maintain and diversify the region’s water supply while protecting groundwater basins.
UWCD is proposing the Alternative Supply Assurance Pipeline (ASAP) project to address regional water supply challenges such as:
The ASAP project would allow continuous deliveries from Lake Piru via 27 miles of new pipeline and existing delivery systems to meet demands on the Oxnard Plain. The project would:
Increase State Water Project (SWP) imports by 6,000 acre-feet per year
Increase surface water deliveries by 14,000 acre-feet per year
Allow full control of water deliveries to Oxnard Plain
Maximize surface water deliveries during drought periods
Increase water levels in coastal aquifers
Reduce seawater intrusion
UWCD ACQUIRED SUPPLEMENTAL SWP WATER IN 2017 AND 2019 TO SUPPORT THE PROJECT. Success relies on collaboration with regional agencies and overcoming challenges such as capital investment, project permitting, water rights, and quagga mussel containment.
