The future of groundwater management is underway. As required under the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act (SGMA), the three Groundwater Sustainability Agencies (GSAs) in the Merced Subbasin have worked together to develop a Draft Groundwater Sustainability Plan (GSP). The GSP is a roadmap for how groundwater will be sustainably managed for years to come.

The draft GSP is now available for your review and comment.

We encourage you to take part in this important review process by attending the Groundwater Sustainability Plan Review Workshop. The workshop will also discuss important issues that can affect the water you use in your home. Your comments on the Draft GSP are vital to helping address water quality and water supply challenges in your community.

The official 30-day public review and comment period will conclude on August 19, 2019.  A Public Hearing will take place on September 18, 2019 at 6 pm at the Merced Civic Center.

DISCUSSION TOPICS:

  • What is the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act (SGMA)?
  • Your local Groundwater Sustainability Agency (GSA)
  • How can SGMA affect me and my community?
  • Review of the Groundwater Sustainability Plan: Help protect your human right to safe drinking water

Rural community residents, residents on private wells, residents on community water system, and water and school board members are encouraged to attend. Spanish translation will be available.
