From the State Water Resources Control Board:
The State Water Board’s Groundwater Management Program recently issued letters to each county regarding the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act (SGMA). The letter is intended as a friendly reminder of the upcoming SGMA deadline for formation of Groundwater Sustainability Agencies.
The letters included the following, which are available on the State Water Board’s website:
- Reminder letter (example available at: http://www.waterboards.ca.gov/water_issues/programs/gmp/docs/eligbility/county_reminder_20170420.pdf);
- Map of county and managed/unmanaged areas, as of April 6th 2017 (all maps available at: http://www.waterboards.ca.gov/water_issues/programs/gmp/docs/eligbility/county_compliance_20170406.pdf);
- A brief intervention fact sheet (available at http://www.waterboards.ca.gov/water_issues/programs/gmp/docs/intervention/intervention_fs.pdf); and
- FAQs on GSAs (available at: http://www.waterboards.ca.gov/water_issues/programs/gmp/docs/eligbility/gsa_faq.pdf)
