The California Department of Water Resources (DWR) is soliciting comments on Groundwater Sustainability Plans. All plans are available for viewing on the DWR SGMA Portal and open to public comment until April 15, 2020. Information on how to comment on a plan is available here. The Sustainable Groundwater Management Act (SGMA) requires local water users to bring groundwater use to sustainable levels by 2040.  Groundwater Sustainability Agencies (GSAs) have the authority and responsibility to sustainably manage their respective groundwater basins and also collaborate and coordinate with GSAs on a basin-wide scale.  WG encourages its members to view the plans that cover basins where you farm and provide comment.
