Casitas Municipal Water District is asking residents, farmers and businesses in the Ojai Valley to reduce outdoor watering and non-essential indoor water use Friday, Sept. 21, while a water pipeline is temporarily shut down, repaired and restored to full service.
The work is scheduled to begin at 8 a.m. and to be completed by 8 p.m.
Casitas Springs will experience a water outage on that day. The areas of Foster Park, Oak View, Ojai and Upper Ojai will continue to have water available at the tap, relying on the limited water supply in local water storage tanks.
Cooperation is requested of all water customers in the areas of Oak View, Ojai Valley and Upper Ojai Valley to curtail their water usage for the day. Local residents, farmers and businesses are asked to plan and prepare to do their part to ensure local water storage tanks won’t be drained by the water demands. Agricultural customers are asked to curtail their irrigation for the day. Residential customers are requested to not irrigate landscape on that day and use conservation measures in their indoor use of water.
