Watersheds Coalition of Ventura County


Welcome to the website for the Watersheds Coalition of Ventura County (WCVC). The coalition is comprised of a consortium of local cities, wholesale and retail water agencies, special districts, the County of Ventura, and non-governmental agencies interested in promoting and implementing integrated regional water management planning efforts in Ventura County.



This 2019 WCVC IRWM Plan Amendment was developed by building on the existing 2014 WCVC IRWM Plan to address revisions and additions required by the DWR 2016, Prop. 1 IRWM Program Guidelines and Plan Standards. This amendment represents a collaborative effort involving stakeholder agencies, organizations, and individuals.

The 2014 WCVC Integrated Regional Water Management Plan (IRWMP) Update was the product of an intensive stakeholder process conducted under the direction of the Watersheds Coalition of Ventura County (WCVC). The 2014 IRWM Plan reflects the unique needs of a diverse region in Ventura County, which encompasses three major watersheds, ten cities, portions of the Los Padres National Forest, a thriving agricultural economy, and is home to more than 854,000 people (as of 2018).
