    There are social media concerns about nitrate contamination in the drinking water in Oxnard. The problem is not in the City of Oxnard’s water supply. It is with the Vineyard Avenue Acres Mutual Water Company (VAAMWC). The water provided by the City of Oxnard is fine — it is clean and safe.

    While the water customers in question are in a small area within our City limits, VAAMWC is a private, separate water system that does not have a physical connection to the City of Oxnard’s water system. 

    The City of Oxnard does not supply water to VAAMWC customers, and there is no risk of contamination of the City’s water system.

    The water provided by the City of Oxnard is clean and safe.

    The State Water Resource Control Board recently mandated Vineyard Avenue Acres Mutual Water Company to provide its customers with a public notification of the violation of a primary contaminant exceedance for nitrate, meaning the water it is supplying exceeds the maximum limit allowed for nitrates in drinking water.

    Questions about VAAMWC’s situation should be directed to Mr. Bill Ramirez at 805-469-0077.

    As part of Oxnard’s commitment to protect our public’s health and safety and providing good water quality, the City of Oxnard’s Water Division performs routine water quality sampling and analysis throughout our service area on a weekly basis. Specifically, nitrate is sampled routinely and analyzed by an independent laboratory. In addition to the routine sampling for nitrate, the Oxnard Water Division also incorporates sophisticated technology that constantly monitors nitrate levels.

    The City of Oxnard’s annual water quality report can be found by following this link:  http://oxnard.org/CCR

    El agua que suministra la Ciudad de Oxnard es Potable y Segura

    Se menciona en las redes sociales la preocupación que hay sobre la contaminación por nitrato en el agua potable de Oxnard. El problema no está en el suministro de agua de la Ciudad de Oxnard. Es con la compañía del agua Vineyard Avenue Acres Mutual Water Company (VAAMWC). El agua que suministra la ciudad de Oxnard no tiene problemas, es potable y segura.

    Aunque los clientes del agua en cuestión se encuentran dentro de una pequeña zona que está dentro de nuestros límites de la ciudad, VAAMWC es un sistema de agua privado y separado que no cuenta con una conexión física con el sistema de agua de la Ciudad de Oxnard. La Ciudad de Oxnard no suministra agua a los clientes de VAAMWC, y no existe riesgo de contaminación del sistema hidráulico de la ciudad.

    El agua proporcionada por la Ciudad de Oxnard es potable y segura.

    La Junta Estatal de Control de Recursos Hídricos (State Water Resource Control Board) recientemente ordenó a la compañía del agua Vineyard Avenue Acres Mutual Water Company enviar a sus clientes una notificación pública de la violación por la excedencia de contaminantes primarios por nitrato, lo que significa que el agua que suministra excede el límite máximo permitido de nitratos en el agua potable.

    Si tiene preguntas sobre la situación de VAAMWC debe dirigirlas al Sr. Bill Ramirez al 805- 469-0077.

    Como parte del compromiso de Oxnard de proteger la salud y seguridad de nuestro público y proporcionar una buena calidad del agua, la División de Agua de la Ciudad de Oxnard realiza semanalmente muestreos y análisis rutinarios de la calidad del agua a través de toda nuestra área de servicio. Específicamente, el nitrato se muestrea rutinariamente y es analizado por un laboratorio independiente. Además del muestreo rutinario del nitrato, la División de Agua de Oxnard también incorpora una tecnología sofisticada que supervisa constantemente los niveles de nitrato.
