The Department of Water Resources’ Sustainable Groundwater Management Grant Program has awarded a $7.6 million dollar grant to the MGA for the implementation of the Basin Groundwater Sustainability Plan. Projects funded by the grant include the relocation of coastal wells, increased aquifer injection to improve groundwater supplies, and groundwater and hydraulic modeling needed for informed sustainable groundwater management. Our neighbor to the South, Pajaro Valley Water Management Agency, received a similar grant to create an alternative water source for agriculture, and to reduce groundwater overdraft and seawater intrusion. The funding of these projects is a significant step towards groundwater sustainability in our coastal region. Thanks, DWR!
