Triunfo Water & Sanitation District 2022 Year in Review

Triunfo Water & Sanitation District Year in Review - 2022 Recap

We’re All in This Together

It is a pleasure serving the 30,000-plus people who live, work, and play in Triunfo Water & Sanitation District’s (TWSD) service area. It’s our mission to be the best possible resource for our water and sanitation customers—while consistently delivering exceptional customer service.

Despite another year of severe drought, we reached many milestones in 2022. We moved into our brand-new offices and have been able to work together with our valued customers to conserve water in new and smarter ways—helping to ensure a brighter future.

The future is undoubtedly bright. The Las Virgenes-Triunfo Joint Powers Authority (JPA) continues its tireless efforts to provide customers of the Las Virgenes-Triunfo service area with access to a renewable, affordable, and sustainable source of water via the groundbreaking Pure Water Project.

We thank our customers and residents for their ongoing efforts to conserve water. While we all hope for rain, snow-packed Sierras, and the overall easing of drought, we must also prepare for continual dry conditions moving forward. It’s going to take a strong team effort from all of us!

Triunfo Transitions to New Office Location

In 2020, TWSD’s board voted to transition from being a contract services-operated district to an independent agency, bringing all services in-house and moving its offices to within its service area. In 2022, Triunfo Water & Sanitation District officially moved its administrative and customer service offices to Westlake Village.

“As an independent agency, we now have the flexibility to better address the unique needs of the communities we serve,” says Leon Shapiro, TWSD Board of Directors Chairperson for 2022.

We now move forward confidently into 2023—eager to celebrate our 60th anniversary with all of you!

Our new address is:
370 North Westlake Blvd., Suite 100
Westlake Village, CA 91362

Business hours are 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.

Triunfo’s 2022 Drought and Conservation Response

Directors approved restricting outdoor water usage by TWSD customers to one day per week, effective June 1, 2022. This is in response to MWD’s directive to cities and districts that receive their water supply from the State Water Project. READ MORE

In September 2022, the TWSD Board of Directors approved reducing the once-a-week sprinkler irrigation time from 15 to 10 minutes per water station, as required by the Metropolitan Water District. READ MORE

TWSD reminds customers that free recycled water is available through the Las Virgenes-Triunfo Recycled Water Fill Station in Calabasas. READ MORE

Water Smart Summer Classes

Proving that it can be fun to learn about ways to be water smart, in 2022, TWSD held four free summertime sessions to help customers maximize every drop of their outdoor water use. Certified instructors from the Master Gardeners of Ventura covered subjects such as lawn replacement alternatives, California natives, fire- and water-smart landscaping, drought-tolerant gardening, design, and maintenance.

Getting Social

Every hour is social hour now. In 2022, TWSD continued to expand its outreach through social media—including Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn. Just like its monthly e-newsletter, TWSD uses its social media channels to share information like water use updates, conservation tips, sewer health guidelines, news, and more. Let’s Connect!

Moving Forward into the New Year

We’re Turning 60 in 2023!

It’s hard to imagine that we have been serving our region for six decades! Originally established as Triunfo County Sanitation District in 1963, TWSD has made great strides in the years since.

  • In 1964, TWSD and Las Virgenes Municipal Water District (LVMWD) launched the Las Virgenes-Triunfo Joint Powers Authority (JPA) to better manage water resources in the included service area.
  • In 1993, TWSD expanded its operations to include potable water service by purchasing Metropolitan Development’s Metropolitan Water Company, located within the District’s Oak Park service area.
  • In 2017, TWSD expanded its recycled water service for irrigation of parks, schoolyards, homeowner association landscapes, and roadway greenbelts–and increased its operating efficiency–by purchasing Calleguas Municipal Water District’s recycled water system.
  • Today, TWSD provides water to over 14,000 people as well as sanitation and state-of-the-art water treatment services for approximately 30,000 customers whose fees are part of their property tax.

TWSD is more prepared and motivated than ever to provide each of its valued customers with clean water, reliable sewer services, and, as always, superior customer service.

Join us throughout 2023 as we celebrate this milestone birthday!
