Groundwater Conservation Through Well Extraction Management
The Fox Canyon Groundwater Management Agency (FCGMA) manages and protects both confined and unconfined aquifers within several groundwater basins underlying the southern portion of Ventura County. The FCGMA is an independent special district, separate from the County of Ventura or any city government. It was created by the California Legislature in 1982 to oversee Ventura County's vital groundwater resources. The boundary covers 183 square miles, and all lands lying above the deep Fox Canyon aquifer account for more than half of the water needs for over 700,000 residents in the cities of Ventura, Oxnard, Port Hueneme, Camarillo, and Moorpark, plus the unincorporated communities of Saticoy, El Rio, Somis, Moorpark Home Acres, Nyeland Acres, Point Mugu and Montalvo.
Our offices are located in the Water Resources Division Ventura County Government Center Administration Building. For maps and directions to the FCGMA office click here.
On Friday afternoon (October 30), while flagging traffic on Creek Road near Ojai, Ventura County Public Works Agency staff - Adan Lara - was struck by a car and died from his injuries. Liked and respected by his co-workers, Adan was a person who genuinely took great pride in his work and thoroughly enjoyed his job. Adan was also very active in his community and in his church. He volunteered to teach classes at Nordhoff High School and he helped to register voters and worked polling places during elections. We at Public Works will miss him greatly. Adan was the primary source of income for his family. Right now we can help by donating to offset their current unexpected expenses. Please consider donating to the Adan Lara Memorial Fund (https://www.gofundme.com/x5888pek./). Thank you in advance for your support of Adan's work and his family in this time of tremendous sorrow. - Jeff Pratt
