The Water Distribution System
Casitas service areas include Ojai, Upper Ojai, The Ventura River Valley, City of Ventura to Mills Road and beach areas from Solimar to Rincon and on up to the Santa Barbara County Line. Casitas has 50,000 customers including 23 water purveyors.
Casitas has a network of pipelines that carry treated water from the Marion Walker Pressure Filtration Plant to several above ground reservoirs for temporary storage and eventually to the customers. Each reservoir has a mixing device to circulate the water and keep it fresh. We routinely sample water throughout the distribution system and address any potential problems well before it reaches the customer.
Casitas has a cross connection control program to eliminate the accidental mixing of our water supply with another water source.
