Camarillo Water Safe for Drinking & Washing

Camarillo, California – The City of Camarillo wants to assure the community that our water is both safe and reliable and we have provided answers to some commonly asked questions.

Is my drinking water safe?

Yes, the City’s water is safe to drink. The City’s water supply continues to meet all stringent state and federal drinking water requirements, and the current water treatment processes are specifically designed to protect the public from harmful bacteria and viruses, including flu and COVID-19. The City of Camarillo is committed to providing customers with safe, reliable, and quality water services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. 

Will water continue be available?

Yes. The City’s Public Works Department water and wastewater facilities staff are utilizing social distancing practices and have measures in place to safely perform their duties. The community can rely on the City for a safe supply of water.

Keep Our Pipes Running Clog Free!

Dispose of all disinfecting wipes and paper towels in the trash. Please do not flush wipes down the toilet, not even the “flushable” kind. These can cause costly damage to your house pipes and also to City sewers. It is important that everyone in our community does their part to keep our pipes running clog free.

Will City water/sewer service be discontinued for delinquent accounts?

The City’s Water Division will waive utility payment penalties for non-payment and will not shutoff water service during the COVID-19 pandemic. Late penalties assessed before the City’s emergency declaration will be tolled, not waived.
