The Groundwater Authority has been hosting a series of public meetings to provide updates on local efforts to meet the state goals of SGMA. This fourth public meeting will give an overview of the elements included in the Draft Groundwater Sustainability Plan, which will be available for public comment July 10 – August 25. The public will have the opportunity to ask questions and provide input on the plan.
SGMA requires that the plan be complete by January 31, 2020 and the basin must reach sustainability by 2040.
