"WebLift met our agencies high expectations to design and organize a well crafted website. Their focus on customer service was a critical factor in managing the transition from our old site to the new one. With approximately 1,000 daily visitors to our site, we needed to quickly address our customers' concerns and with timely and successful solutions that is what WebLift's staff provided."
Ron Merckling, Water Conservation/Public Affairs Manager
The Casitas Municipal Water District supplies water to 60-70,000 people in Western Ventura County and to hundreds of farms. The District boundaries encompass the city of Ojai, Upper Ojai, the Ventura River Valley area, the city of Ventura to Mills Road, and the Rincon and beach area to the ocean and Santa Barbara County line.
The District was formed in October of 1952. On March 1, 1956, the Ventura River project was authorized by Congress, which included the Robles Diversion facility on the Ventura River, the Robles Canal, and the Casitas Dam. The Casitas Dam was completed in November 1958. Lake Casitas then began to fill up and would not spill until 1978. Lake Casitas holds 254,000 acre-feet of water when full.
Casitas encompassed several different websites. The management of which was on several platforms making it difficult to stay updated and it was not presenting a coherent brand image.
We combined all their web properties into one easy to navigate website. We set up user permissions so that key personnel would have access to update specific portions of the site as needed. This also gave county residence an easier way to access data they need.
We are proud to have Casitas as our client and look forward to mainting their site.
