The California Department of Water Resources (DWR) announced that it will release draft Groundwater Sustainability Plan (GSP) regulations this week as part of the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act (SGMA).

DWR is required to finalize GSP regulations by June 1, 2016. An overview of the draft regulations was presented to the California Water Commission yesterday and will be available for public review on DWR’s website.

Last Wednesday, Senator Feinstein introduced a revised drought relief bill. Responding to the bill, Western Growers President & CEO Tom Nassif stated the following:

“We are encouraged by Senator Feinstein’s introduction of a revised drought bill, but to have any chance of success, it must have the support of Senator Boxer and the Obama and Brown administrations, as well as the environmental organizations that have pulled those parties away from reasonable compromise water legislation in the past.”
