Groundwater Conservation Through Well Extraction Management

The Fox Canyon Groundwater Management Agency (FCGMA) manages and protects both confined and unconfined aquifers within several groundwater basins underlying the southern portion of Ventura County. The FCGMA is an independent special district, separate from the County of Ventura or any city government. It was created by the California Legislature in 1982 to oversee Ventura County's vital groundwater resources. The boundary covers 183 square miles, and all lands lying above the deep Fox Canyon aquifer account for more than half of the water needs for over 700,000 residents in the cities of Ventura, Oxnard, Port Hueneme, Camarillo, and Moorpark, plus the unincorporated communities of Saticoy, El Rio, Somis, Moorpark Home Acres, Nyeland Acres, Point Mugu and Montalvo.

Our offices are located in the Water Resources Division Ventura County Government Center Administration Building. For maps and directions to the FCGMA office click here.

Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) Ordinance and Incentives

The FCGMA Board has adopted an Advanced Metering Infrastructure ordinance requiring AMI devices on all wells required to have a meter. Agricultural wells have until December 31, 2018 to comply. To assist well owners FCGMA is offering incentives up to $3500 per well to install AMI. For information on the ordinance and the AMI incentive program please click here.
