New water agency to hold its first meeting

Bill Warner, Ojai Valley News reporter
The Upper Ventura River Groundwater Agency (UVRGA) will hold its first meeting Jan. 5 in the board room of the Casitas Municipal Water District (CMWD). The agenda will include appointment of stakeholder representatives and officers for the Board of Directors.
Five area agencies are participating in the formation of the agency: the Meiners Oaks Water District, the Ventura River Water District, the city of Ventura, CMWD and the county of Ventura. Stakeholder directors will be chosen to represent environmental and agricultural interests.
Once the membership has been finalized, the board can appeal to the California Department of Water Resources for recognition as a groundwater sustainability agency.
The CMWD offices are at 1055 Ventura Ave. in Oak View. The meeting will begin at noon and is open to the public.
