Ojai Valley District to Shake Mandatory Water Cuts for the First Time in 8 Years

For the first time in years, Ojai Valley residents won’t be required to curb their water use or risk fines.

Starting in June, the Casitas Municipal Water District plans to end its mandatory water conservation measures and stiff penalties — ones in place for the past eight years in the drought-stressed region. The Casitas board unanimously approved the move at a meeting this week.
