DWR Seeks Final Public Comment on Key Draft Groundwater Regulations
Historic legislation enacted by Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. last year empowers local agencies to bring groundwater basins into sustainable patterns of pumping and recharge. Defining the boundaries of groundwater basins is crucial to implementation of the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act. The Department of Water Resources (DWR) held the first of three public meetings today to solicit final public review and comment on the draft regulations that establish a process for local agencies to follow should they seek to modify the boundaries of a groundwater basin. Today’s meeting was held at the California Environmental Protection Agency Headquarters in Sacramento. For more information, see News Advisory, Website, Video
