On Thursday evening, May 22, over 40 people attended the "What is a Watershed?" presentation in Ojai to learn about where our water comes from and how the health of the river is affected by our lifestyles and land use.
The presentation included discussion of Ecosystem-based management for the Ventura River, Water Supply, Land Use, Water Quality, Integrated Solutions, and What You Can Do.
Although most Ojai residents have some idea of where their water comes from, this presentation is intended to enhance community awareness of the interactions between land use and water quantity and quality. Hopefully those who attended will have a better understanding of the interconnections between everything we do on a daily basis and the health of the river and watershed.
