Groundwater Sustainability Plan Workshop

You're invited to an April 1st workshop on Groundwater Sustainability Plans! 

As you know, due to the passage of the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act (SGMA) in 2014, groundwater users around the state are coming together to change how they use their shared groundwater resources. The first step in the SGMA process is the formation of Groundwater Sustainability Agencies (GSAs), which must be completed by June 30, 2017. After that, the next task will be to develop Groundwater Sustainability Plans (GSPs). These plans are crucial to ensuring safe and affordable drinking water for your community long into the future. As a representative of a small water system, your voice is important in the SGMA process, and we want to help make sure you have the tools and information you need to participate fully. As such, we are hosting a GSP workshop designed specifically for small valley water systems. 

The workshop will cover questions such as:

  • What exactly is a GSP and why is it important? 
  • How does SGMA define "sustainability"?
  • What is a water budget? 
  • What questions should you ask SGMA consultants? 
  • What can a groundwater model tell you?
  • How will sustainability be measured? 

We hope you will be able to join us! RSVP below or contact Kristin Dobbin at or 559-733-0219 with any questions.

Date: April 1, 2017
Time: 8:30 AM - 4:00 PM (Lunch provided)
Location: Cafe 210, Assembly Room (210 W. Center Ave, Visalia)

Space is limited - RSVP Today!

Hosted by: The Community Water Leaders Network (CWLN)
