Did you know, in the San Joaquin Valley, there are 128 Groundwater Sustainability Plans? Are you wondering: What’s a Groundwater Sustainability Plan, and how does it affect me? Join Fresno State’s California Water Institute, Civic Well, and Maven’s Notebook for the How To Read A GSP Webinar.
This webinar covered Groundwater Sustainability Plans (GSP) developed by Groundwater Sustainability Agencies (GSA). These 20-year plans will provide how a GSA plans to ensure groundwater is managed sustainably within the groundwater basin.
Even though these GSP’s can be very different based on their locations, goals, and other factors, they all have many parts in common. During this session, you will learn what they have in common, what they cover, and key items and phrases that are important to you
