Stakeholder Workshop: Sustainable Groundwater Management Act (SGMA) - December 7

Join us for a stakeholder workshop on California's new groundwater law!

In 2014, the California legislature passed a new law known as the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act (SGMA). This law applies to 127 high and medium priority groundwater basins and requires local agencies in each of those basins to form Groundwater Sustainability Agencies (GSAs) to manage the groundwater within their boundaries in a sustainable manner. To achieve the goal of sustainability, SGMA gives these agencies new powers including the ability to regulate, suspend, and impose fees on groundwater pumping. As a result, the formation of GSAs is an important process that will greatly affect all groundwater users.

To help local stakeholders better understand the new law and its implications the workshop will cover:
1. The Sustainable Groundwater Management Act of 2014;
2. The implementation process and timeline; and
3. How stakeholders can participate.

After four years of severe drought, we know the importance of having reliable groundwater resources. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn more about this important new law which will be critical for ensuring a more sustainable future for our communities!
