Ventura County Hoping To Get Federal Loan To Help Finance Water System Improvements

Posted on Wednesday, December 7, 2011 8:58am


Ventura County will apply for a federal loan, and raise water rates to try to replace old, rusting water pipes in Somis.

County officials say the water in the community is safe, but it sometimes  has a brownish tinge to it due to rust which can stain fabric.  The price tag for replacing the pipes is estimtaed to be in the $10 million dollar range, so officials are hoping a combination of money from a low interest loan, and rate hikes will cover costs of fixing the system which serves more than a thousand customers.
