The Ventura County Board of Supervisors approved a revision to the Ventura County Waterworks Manual (VCWWM) (2nd Edition) on September 14, 2014 . The manual includes standards that apply to any facilities or system in the County that meets any one or more of the following conditions:
a. Is currently in or plans to be located within the County or County-dependent special district owned or controlled rights-of-way.
b. Serves, or plans to serve, water to any land development project which is subject to any approval issued by the County or a County-dependent special district.
c. Provides fire protection service in the Ventura County Fire Protection District (FPD).
Receipt and acceptance of the WAL by the County is a prerequisite to a purveyor issuing additional “will serve” letters. This requirement was implemented because experience has shown that, incrementally, “will serve” letters for additional services have been issued by some purveyors to add connections to existing water systems without taking into account the cumulative effect of all previous additions.
