State Water Board Releases New Sustainable Groundwater Management Act FAQ

December 16, 2016
The State Water Board released its new Sustainable Groundwater Management Act (SGMA) frequently asked questions document providing guidance on questions asked about groundwater sustainability agencies (GSAs).
 
The 2014 SGMA requires the formation of GSAs in high- and medium-priority groundwater basins and subbasins by June 30, 2017.
 
The new FAQ supplements additional frequently asked questions about GSAs that the California Department of Water Resources (DWR) has responded to, which are available on DWR’s Sustainable Groundwater Management website. The FAQ will be updated as necessary.
