Groundwater sustainability plans that have been submitted to the state are now online at the DWR SGMA Portal. Plans are open to public comment for 75 days after they were posted online. Below is a table of the submitted plans, the counties they cover and details about the public comment period for that plan. Information about how to comment on a plan can be found in a new fact sheet in English and Spanish. Public comments are welcomed and encouraged – a SGMA Portal account is not necessary.
