Water Conservation

Water is an indispensable resource that many of us take for granted. While safe and reliable drinking water in Moorpark is provided by the Ventura County Waterworks District 1, the benefits of clean surface waters (creeks, streams, and channels) are important as well.

Pollutant Prevention

Issues with surface water quality can threaten the well-being of our ecosystems, wildlife, and public health at local beaches. The City of Moorpark makes it a priority to prevent pollutants from entering storm drains which lead to waterways such as creeks, bays, and the ocean.

The city also makes it a priority to encourage its residents to do their part by using water in a sustainable and responsible manner.
