  • A step-by-step guidance document to efficiently identify and consider GDEs under SGMA
  • Identification of all SGMA provisions related to GDEs
  • Case studies providing real-world examples of processes, tools and techniques related to GDEs and sustainable groundwater management
  • A library of links to additional papers, articles and reference materials related to GDEs and sustainable groundwater management


In the next few weeks, the Hub will be updated with:

  1. A statewide mapping tool to identify vegetative indicators of GDEs in your local area. The Hub currently provides a sample map from Ventura County
  2. A rooting depth database for common groundwater dependent plants to help identify thresholds necessary to sustain GDEs.
