It’s time to pay attention to groundwater



The local bodies tasked with developing management plans for regional groundwater use – known as groundwater sustainability agencies or GSAs – are getting ready to develop the “Sustainable Management Criteria” – basically, a fancy term for defining and measuring groundwater sustainability within the basins. The three GSA Advisory committees and the Sonoma Valley GSA Board were introduced to Sustainable Management Criteria (SMCs) at recent meetings, and the Santa Rosa Plain and Petaluma Valley boards will be discussing SMCs at upcoming meetings.

Public workshops will take place in all basins in the winter to get input on the first section of the groundwater sustainability plans, and to introduce SMC concepts. The Sonoma Valley GSA Board will meet again on Nov. 25, 4-6 p.m. in the Valley of the Moon Water District Board Room, 19039 Bay St., Sonoma. Visit sonomavalleygroundwater.org for more information.
