Free ACWA webinar to highlight new state water board streamlined groundwater permit
In November the State Water Resources Control Board’s Division of Water Rights announced a new permitting process that provides a streamlined approval approach for diverting and capturing water from high flow events for the purposes of recharging groundwater basins.
The streamlined process is intended to directly assist Groundwater Sustainability Agencies (GSAs) and other local agencies working to comply with the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act. Replenishing groundwater basins is an important management activity that GSAs will need to consider for inclusion on their groundwater sustainability plans and as part of basin sustainability.
ACWA is hosting a free informational webinar with the State Water Resources Control Board to share the new streamlined water rights permitting process for underground storage. The webinar will be held on Dec. 13 from 1:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. PST. Interested parties can register here.

The Association of California Water Agencies (ACWA) has prepared A Technical Framework for Increasing Groundwater Replenishment in response to a growing need to promote groundwater replenishment activities as a strategy to maintain or improve groundwater levels statewide. This framework summarizes the tools and resources and provides a narrative framework and checklist for water managers to consider as they pursue groundwater recharge projects and activities.
