GSA Meetings

GSA meetings are held on the 2nd Thursday of each month, sometimes at different locations until the GSA can secure a suitable permanent location. The GSA consists of the following agencies: Casitas Municipal Water District, City of San Buena Ventura, Meiners Oaks Water District, Ventura River Water District, County of Ventura, Ojai Valley Land Conservancy (Environmental Stakeholder) and Emily Ayala (Agricultural Stakeholder). All of the agencies and stakeholders will work together collaboratively with the public, Federal,State and Local officials  to improve and sustain water for human and environmental uses.

If you wish to be engaged in the meetings please follow this site for times and locations of future meetings. If you would just like to be placed on our email notification list, please contact Mike Hollebrands via email at mikeh2o@meinersoakswater.com.
