Groundwater Sustainability Plan for the San Jacinto Groundwater Basin
Dudek | September 30th, 2021
Eastern Municipal Water District (EMWD) has developed this Groundwater Sustainability Plan (GSP) for the San Jacinto Groundwater Basin (SJGB) in compliance with the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act (SGMA; California Water Code [CWC], Section 10720 et seq.), which was passed by the California legislature and signed into law in 2014. This GSP has been developed by EMWD as the Groundwater Sustainability Agency (GSA) in accordance with the Department of Water Resources (DWR) GSP Regulations to apply to the entirety of the San Jacinto Groundwater Basin (DWR Basin 8-005) that is not adjudicated. The non-adjudicated part of the SJGB is considered the Plan Area in this GSP. Data from, and conditions in the adjudicated portions of the SJGB have been incorporated into this GSP, as appropriate, for understanding groundwater conditions within the Plan Area (Figure ES-1). The purpose of this GSP is to define the groundwater conditions that will be used to ensure ongoing, long-term, sustainable management of the groundwater resources within the Plan Area.
