Building a Sustainable Groundwater Future in the SLO Basin


Groundwater is a vital contributor to our region’s water supply. Local agencies (the City and County of San Luis Obispo) are developing a Groundwater Sustainability Plan (GSP) to better 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 (SGMA).


Planning has just started and there are several ways stakeholders can get involved in the plan development process. Learn more

Next Virtual Stakeholder Workshop: Sustainable Goal Setting


October 1, 2020 • 3pm-5pm • Zoom Meetings


In this virtual workshop, stakeholders will have the opportunity to review the draft basin wide sustainability goal and corresponding monitoring network for the SLO Basin, developed from earlier stakeholder and GSC input. Participants will be engaged in discussions to further refine the sustainability goal and monitoring network. Input gathered within this workshop will help ensure that the goals outlined in the GSP align to the values and needs of Basin stakeholders while still meeting the requirements of SMGA.
