Current Outage Information

Post Date:09/09/2019 9:13 AM
As part of the District's improvements to the Ojai Water System, customer outages are planned to connect service lines to the new pipelines. The attached map shows the areas impacted and the dates for the planned outages. Water will be shut off from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on the dates indicated.
The operation of valves may cause colored water. Air may also be entrapped during re-pressurization which may cause "burping" at your faucet and/or give the water a "milky" appearance. This does not affect the sanitary condition of the water. If you experience either of these conditions, it is recommended you flush your service line from an outside hose-bibb followed by flushing the cold-water taps from your house faucets.
A disinfectant residual is maintained to protect the distribution system against potential contamination. Casitas conducts bacteriological sampling and testing following all shutdowns and prior to placing a new water main into service to ensure the sanitary integrity of the water is maintained.
Thank you for your patience during these important system upgrades. Our goal is to provide reliable, safe drinking water to our customers. If you have any questions or concerns, please call us at 805.649.2251.
