Yesterday, the California Department of Water Resources (DWR) sent out a notification to stakeholders announcing the California Water Commission approved emergency groundwater regulations outlined in the historic Sustainable Groundwater Management Act (SGMA).

The regulations will be filed with the Office of Administrative Law (OAL) by June 1, 2016.  OAL then has 10 days in which to review and approve the emergency rulemaking file, after which it files the regulations with the Secretary of State’s Office. The regulations are effective once filed with the Secretary of State’s Office.

The regulations will post HERE when in effect.
