stakeholders and their perspectives;
• A description of the background and challenges for California’s groundwater management and
current efforts to achieve measurable progress toward sustainable management;
• A set of key Findings; and
• A package of seven policy Recommendations intended to lead to a new state policy for meaningful, measurable improvement in groundwater management within realistic timeframes.
