Online News for Lompoc
Most of the city is in the valley of the Santa Ynez River at an elevation of about 80100 feet (2530 meters); recent expansion has been to the north, on higher ground known as Vandenberg Village, with elevations of 150300 feet (50100 meters). Like most rivers in Southern California, the Santa Ynez River does not have a surface flow for most of the year. Underground flow in the sandy river bed recharges the aquifer beneath the city, from which 9 wells, with a tenth one planned, supply the city with water. Unlike most California cities, Lompoc is not connected to the State Water Project.
The city was long known as the flower seed capital of the world. Flower fields have diminished in recent years, so it's debatable whether that title still stands. According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 11.6 square miles, all of it land.
The Federal Correctional Complex located between Lompoc and Vandenberg AFB includes both a medium security facility and minimum security (Club Fed) farm facility.
