About Ventura Regional Sanitation District
Ventura Regional Sanitation District is an independent, non-tax supported, public waste management agency founded in 1970. Organized pursuant to the County Sanitation District Act of the California Health and Safety Code, the District provides a full range of services, including integrated waste treatment and disposal services to eight cities, nine special districts, schools, homeowner associations, and other customers. VRSD is comprised of approximately seventy five employees and provides environmentally safe disposal of solid waste, effective treatment of wastewater, reliable delivery of potable and recycled water, and related services.
Another major area of emphasis for the District is the provision of customized water and wastewater services to cities, utility districts, and private entities. Included are facilities owned by the Triunfo Sanitation District (TSD), the Saticoy Sanitary District (SSD), the Camrosa Water District, the Ojai Valley Sanitation District, the County of Ventura, California State University at Channel Islands; and several small wastewater plants for private schools in Ventura and Santa Barbara Counties. In total, the District operates three potable wa...ter systems, one recycled water system, and seven wastewater treatment plants.
VRSD added solid waste disposal to its range of services in 1972 when we assumed operation of Ventura County’s publicly owned landfills. Today, we own and operate one active solid waste disposal site (Toland Road Landfill near Santa Paula) and are responsible for post-closure operations at five more.
