Sustainability Plan

One of the key responsibilities of the MGA is to develop, adopt, and submit a Groundwater Sustainability Plan (GSP or Plan).  Because the Mid-County Groundwater Basin (Basin) is in critical overdraft, the GSP is due to the Department of Water Resources (DWR) no later than January 31, 2020.

The draft GSP for the Basin was presented to the MGA Board of Directors on July 18, 2019.  An open public comment period ran from July 18, 2019 to September 19, 2019.The public comment period on the draft GSP is now closed. Comments received during the public comment period will be read and considered in the development of the final GSP.  A comparison document shows the July 2019 Draft GSP and November 2019 GSP compared with edits/strikeouts.

Following a public hearing on November 21, 2019, the MGA unanimously adopted the GSP.  The GSP will be submitted to DWR for approval prior to January 31, 2020. DWR will then open a 60-day period during which the public can provide comments to DWR on the final GSP.
