THIS JUST IN … DWR Releases an “Incomplete” Groundwater Sustainability Plan Assessment to Madera GSAs, Initiating 180-day Timeline to Correct Deficiencies

From the Department of Water Resources:

Today, the California Department of Water Resources (DWR) released a determination on groundwater sustainability plans (GSPs) developed by local agencies to meet the requirements of the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act (SGMA) in the Madera Subbasin.  

DWR has found in its technical review that the GSPs in the Madera Subbasin contain deficiencies that preclude approval and the plans are determined to be Incomplete. The Madera Subbasin will have 180 days from today’s release of DWR’s determination to address deficiencies and resubmit their corrected GSPs to the Department for review.

The determination can be found on the Department’s SGMA Portal. For more information related to these GSP Assessments, please find the Frequently Asked Questions: Incomplete Determinations & Next Steps on our website.
