MENDOCINO COUNTY WATER AGENCY TO HOLD THE THIRD WORKSHOP ON THE SUSTAINABLE GROUNDWATER MANAGEMENT ACT OF 2014 (SGMA)
On Thursday, August 13, 2015, the Mendocino County Water Agency will hold its third workshop regarding SGMA. The requirement to form a Groundwater Sustainability Agency (GSA) for the Ukiah Valley Basin will be discussed. Topics include the timelines for enactment, authority and responsibility of a GSA, governance options and processes for developing a GSA.
“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 hosted by the City of Ukiah at the Ukiah Conference Center, 200 S. School St., in Ukiah. The discussion will begin at 5:30 p.m. Local agencies are encouraged to come prepared with direction from their respective boards on recommendations for the development of a GSA. This meeting will be open to the public. Stakeholders and all interested parties are encouraged to attend.
