On December 16, 2014, the Board of Supervisors adopted ordinance (Ventura County Ordinance No. 4468). Section 4826.1 - Water Well and Water Well Permit Prohibitions restricts the issuance of new water well permits in portions of the unincorporated area of Ventura County. The attached map shows those unincorporated areas subject to these restrictions (Cuyama basin in the northwest corner of the County is not shown on the map.)

The restrictions apply to the construction of new water wells and the modification or repair to existing water wells There are exceptions for certain repairs or modifications that do not increase capacity, as well as for back-up or stand-by wells. In addition, there are provisions whereby the Public Works Director may waive the restrictions.
