The river received a much-needed rain this week. Ojai received over 4inches, and some locations in the mountains recorded almost 10 inches. Good news for farmers, whose wells ran dry sometime around July, forcing them to purchase water from Casitas Municipal Water District. Good news for the river too, as flows were dropping rapidly at the upper end of the 'live reach' near Casitas Springs.
