WATER QUALITY

United Water Conservation District is dedicated to providing fresh, clean, and safe water to the retail agencies we serve. We follow strict water quality standards set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the State Water Resources Control Board Division of Drinking Water. Our highly trained staff perform regular testing to ensure drinking water meets or exceeds those specifications. Water produced by our wells is naturally filtered through the ground and chlorine and chloramines are added for disinfection.

Consumer Confidence Report

United’s Oxnard-Hueneme Delivery System supplies about 10,000 acre-feet of water per year to several agencies in the Oxnard Plain, including the cities of Oxnard and Port Hueneme, two Naval bases, and several smaller water companies. Those agencies deliver our water to over 215,000 people, most of it treated or blended with other supplies. Each year, thousands of tests are conducted for over 180 constituents that could be found in drinking water.

The results of that testing are detailed in the Consumer Confidence Report, which is published by July 1 each year. The report includes information about the sources of drinking water supplies, what contaminants if any are present, and how they may affect public health. The report also indicates how our water supplies compare to state and federal standards.

Santa Clara River Watershed Sanitary Survey Update

United Water Conservation District performed the first sanitary survey for the Santa Clara River watershed in 1996 (supplemented in 1997).  The original sanitary survey has been updated on two occasions, the first update represented the period between the original survey and December 31, 2000 and the second survey followed five years later culminating on December 31, 2005.

Consumer Confidence Report

The United Water Conservation District has prepared a feasibility study for iron and manganese treatment of deep wells that supply the Oxnard-Hueneme Pipeline. The District is planning to construct treatment facilities which will improve the operational flexibility and drought resilience of the Oxnard-Hueneme Pipeline system.

BASIN CONDITIONS REPORT


United staff conducts regular monitoring of groundwater levels throughout the District. The data from this monitoring is used to track trends and model the effects of future possible hydrologic conditions. In some cases, Basin Management Objectives (BMOs) have been established for a groundwater basin to maintain optimum water levels and prevent overdraft.
