The City of Thousand Oaks is looking into developing local sources of potable water to reduce the City's reliance on the imported water from the State Water Project (SWP), due to increasing cost of imported water and issues with the availability of imported water during sustained drought condition. The City owns four groundwater wells, including the Los Robles Golf Course (LRGC) well. The Los Robles Golf Course Groundwater Utilization Project (Phase 1-Feasibility Study) will perform a feasibility study for an efficient and cost-effective use of the LRGC groundwater well, to treat the brackish groundwater for primarily potable purpose. The potable water will wheel through either the Calleguas or the City's distribution system. An associated benefit of the project is to provide improved irrigation water for the golf course. This feasibility study is considered phase 1 of a larger project. If the results demonstrate that the project is feasible, then the City will move on to the next phases including pilot project, environmental study, design and construction.
City of Thousand Oaks
The primary goal of this project is to study the feasibility of producing a new local source of potable water for the City of Thousand Oaks by using a desalination facility and treating the brackish groundwater from a well located at Los Robles Golf Course. This project will reduce the City's reliance on imported water. An associated benefit of the project is to provide improved irrigation water for the golf course.
