The California Department of Water Resources (DWR) has extended the availability of its Best Management Practices (BMP) Survey until August 8, 2016. The BMPs are intended to provide clarification, guidance and examples to help GSAs develop the essential elements of a Groundwater Sustainability Plan (GSP). If you are actively involved in putting together Groundwater Sustainability Agency (GSA) and plans, you are encouraged to talk part in this survey.
