Our local groundwater basin is critically overdrafted.

Groundwater planning is important to:

  • the quality of our drinking water;
  • adequate local water supplies;
  • local property values;
  • the agricultural economy;
  • rural disadvantaged communities;
  • and the health of local ecosystems.

State-mandated Groundwater Sustainability Plans are currently being drafted, and there will be a public participation and comment period starting this summer before a coordinated plan for our area is submitted to the State by January 31, 2020.
