Groundwater Sustainability Plans

Digger - 21 November 2019

In 2014, Governor Brown signed 3 bills that collectively became known as The Sustainable Groundwater Management Act (SGMA) which created a new structure for managing the State's groundwater resources. SGMA requires formation of Groundwater Sustainability Agencies (GSA) for all basins designated as high or medium priority by CA Department of Water Resources (DWR). The newly formed GSAs are then responsible for the development of Groundwater Sustainability Plans (GSP), that when implemented will avoid "undesirable results" in groundwater elevations, storage levels, water quality degradation, land subsidence, seawater intrusion and downstream interconnected water impacts.
