August marks the end of the 95 Ways to Save summer campaign. This year was dedicated to highlighting the water wise efforts of our community through a fun and engaged awareness campaign. Ventura Water partnered with 95.1 KBBY-FM and 100.7 KHAY-FM to share the message that saving water still matters! Prizes including backpacks, gift cards, and amusement park tickets were raffled off to residents willing to share their water-saving tips on Facebook and at outreach events. We want to thank our community for partnering with us to protect and preserve our local water resources.
