Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI)
Join us for a workshop to discuss the possible implementation of an Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) System to transmit groundwater extraction data! The goal is to retrofit all active and inactive wells within the FCGMA. The DRAFT Ordinance Code revision is available for your review and comment.

AMI metering would eliminate the need for users to manually provide extraction data and would improve the reliability of reporting groundwater extractions. Other potential benefits of AMI technology include: the ability to detect reverse flows and leaks, improved water resource management, and to provide growers with the opportunity to implement advance irrigation practices. An AMI system can be enhanced to include water level measurements, water quality, moisture levels, soil moisture, soil pH, weather and other factors with additional probes/sensors.

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.
