Camrosa Water District is a special district covering 31 square miles in southeastern Ventura County, including eastern Camarillo, California State University Channel Islands, and the Santa Rosa Valley. The District serves a variety of customer types, from agricultural to residential to light industrial, via approximately 7,500 potable and 400 non‐potable connections. In addition to providing potable water, Camrosa collects and treats wastewater, produces recycled water at its Water Reclamation Facility, and recently completed constructing a brackish water desalination facility. We have a lean, cohesive workforce that provides exposure to all aspects of water production, treatment, distribution and collection. Career path includes ample training and future growth opportunities. The Waste Water Reclamation Facility is level IV extended aeration plant that produces Title‐22 tertiary treated recycled water, which Camrosa delivers to California State University—Channel Islands and a handful of local farmers for irrigation. The plant is currently rated at 1.5 MGD and is in the process of rerating it to 2.25 MGD.
