Groundwater is a vital contributor to our region's water supply. Local agencies are developing a Groundwater Sustainability Plan (GSP) to sustainably manage this important water resource for the San Luis Obispo Valley Groundwater Basin (SLO Basin) while meeting the requirements of the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act. Planning has just started and there are several ways stakeholders can get involved in the plan development process. Learn More
The first stakeholder workshop will provide participants with an overview of the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act (SGMA) in easy-to-understand terms, including an overview of the SGMA policy and why sustainable management of the SLO Basin has been made a state priority. Presenters will describe what groundwater is and show the current state of the SLO Basin's groundwater levels and conditions. Expect an accessible presentation that will give a solid grounding in the policy, the region's approach to developing a GSP, and how the plan may affect you. The development of Chapters 1 through 3 are now underway. Please join this first stakeholder workshop to learn more about SGMA, groundwater management, and to preview chapters 1 through 3. Ample time for audience questions has been incorporated into the workshop.
