Sustainable Groundwater Planning in California

Sutter Square Galleria
2901 K St in
Sacramento, CA 95816

This installment in our continuing series on implementation of California’s Sustainable Groundwater Management Act (SGMA) focuses on key current issues for developing Groundwater Sustainability Plans (GSPs). We’ll start with the two primary state agencies reporting on implementation progress from the state’s perspective. We’ll then turn to the first of our substantive panels with a discussion of modeling tools and their role in determining sustainable yields for GSPs.

If your basin is over-subscribed, you’ll be particularly interested in the speakers who will be addressing approaches for augmenting water supplies to avoid or reduce cuts in groundwater production. We’ll round out the first day with a discussion of how GSPs can address effects of groundwater production on surface streams.

The second day focuses on the potential need for production allocations and the interplay between SGMA and groundwater allocations. We’ll conclude with the current best thinking on SGA/GSP finance.

We encourage you to take a careful look at the topics and speaker credentials–they are people you’ll want to get to know. Plan to stay for the reception at the end of the first day, where you can speak one-on-one with our conference faculty.
