Water Board Adopts Emergency Regulations
May 25, 2017
The State Water Resources Control Board adopted emergency regulations to implement provisions to the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act (SGMA) last week. A fact sheet on the changes is available here; the highlights include electronic filing for reports on groundwater extraction, filing fees for the 2017 and 2018 water year, a discount for metered extraction, stakeholder input, and interim plans and groundwater sustainability plans. The full regulations are available here.
The CSAC Agriculture, Environment & Natural Resources Committee recently heard a presentation about the fast approaching SGMA deadlines. The PowerPoint is available here.
