City of Ventura Initiates Adjudication of Water Rights in the Ventura River Watershed

                                  For 20 years, Santa Barbara Channelkeeper has been a watchdog and advocate for the protection, restoration and sustainable management of the Ventura River and its groundwater. We understand there are questions and concerns about the City’s initiative to commence an adjudication in response to our long-fought efforts to secure a remedy to the City’s excessive pumping of water from the River at Foster Park, which we specifically targeted as detrimental to key ecological functions and community uses of the river.
