MENDOCINO COUNTY WATER AGENCY TO HOLD A WORKSHOP AND WEBINAR ON THE SUSTAINABLE GROUNDWATER MANAGEMENT ACT OF 2014 (SGMA)
On Thursday, October 29, 2015, the Mendocino County Water Agency will hold its fourth workshop regarding SGMA. The requirement to form a Groundwater Sustainability Agency (GSA) for the Ukiah Valley Basin will be discussed. Topics will include a recap on 2015 SGMA legislation and creation of a Coordination Committee to evaluate options to form a GSA for the Ukiah Valley Basin.
“It is very important for everyone to stay engaged in this process within the Ukiah Valley, especially water managers, as it is the only groundwater basin presently in Mendocino County that falls under the mandate of the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act of 2014” stated First District Supervisor Carre Brown, who also chairs the Mendocino County Water Agency Board of Directors.
The Mendocino County Water Agency SGMA workshop will be held at the County of Mendocino Administration Center in the Agriculture Building, 890 N. Bush Street in Ukiah. The discussion will begin at 5:30 p.m. This meeting will be open to the public. Stakeholders and all interested parties are encouraged to attend.
In addition, the Water Agency will be hosting a viewing of the SGMA Information Webinar on Tuesday, October 27, 2015 from 1 p.m. – 4 p.m. in the Board of Supervisors Chambers, located at the 501 Low Gap Road in Ukiah. The webinar is being presented by the State Water Resources Control Board (SWRCB) and the Department of Water Resources (DWR) and is designed to inform staff, governing boards and leaders of local public agencies and organization on the technical aspects of SGMA.
