Community Water Center

Community-driven water solutions through organizing, education, and advocacy

Learn More About SGMA



Community Water Center has been working diligently to help educate stakeholders about the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act (SGMA) of 2014. Working with partners throughout the valley we have hosted a series of workshops for regional stakeholders and have also visited many of our local water boards to conduct individual informational sessions. If you are interested in learning more about SGMA implementation, or want to get involved, contact our office Visalia office at (559) 733-0219.

We recently submitted comment letters on several Groundwater Sustainability Plans, read them here
