Five months after Ventura residents voted in favor of building a desalination plant, the Ventura City Council on Monday decided to spend about $175,000 for the first major study on the facility. In November, residents by a 55% margin favored an advisory measure calling for construction of a desalination plant instead of importing water from Northern California. Since the election, the City Council has hired a project manager, a desalination expert and a public relations firm for the project.

Foothill Road reopened to traffic Wednesday, a week after a buried water main ruptured and ate away a huge chunk of the street. Ventura public works officials said they were able to repair the work on schedule for about $50,000. City work crews and contractors have been rebuilding Foothill Road between Hillmont and Day roads since Wednesday, when a foot-wide water main burst and sent thousands of gallons of water into the street.

If life imitated art, it would be a simple matter to follow the dotted line and snip a 200-foot dam near Ojai off the face of the earth. For years, an alliance of environmentalists, fishermen, surfers and officials from every level of government has called for demolishing the obsolete structure. Now, an anonymous band of artists has weighed in, apparently rappelling down the dam's face to paint a huge pair of scissors and a long dotted line. The carefully planned work popped up last week and is, no doubt, Ventura County's most environmentally correct graffiti by a dam site.

Ventura water customers reduced consumption during the month of August compared with last year, but only by 18.4%, city officials announced Thursday. It was the first time that water savings dropped below the 20% mark since a mandatory conservation program began in June.
