California's Sustainable Groundwater Management Act (SGMA) requires the preparation and implementation of Groundwater Sustainability Plans (GSP) for High and Medium priority groundwater basins. The Paso Robles Groundwater Subbasin is a critically overdrafted high priority basin. Therefore, areas within the Basin must be managed under a GSP by January 31, 2020.
The GSAs listed below joined together to form a Cooperative Committee with the purpose of leading development of one GSP for the portion of the Paso Robles Basin in San Luis Obispo County.
For more information, please visit the Groundwater Sustainability Agency websites at:
The Cooperative Committee meets regularly to progress GSP activities. Cooperative Committee meetings are open to the public. Parties interested in the management of groundwater in the Paso Robles Basin are encouraged to attend.
The Groundwater Communication Portal (GCP) tracks Cooperative Committee meetings and other events related to SGMA implementation in the Paso Robles Basin.
The purpose of the GCP is to encourage active participation of groundwater users in GSP development for the Basin. Use the GCP to participate in the following ways:
Additional features, such as a comments feature, are being developed for the GCP. Interested parties will be notified when new features are available.
The comment period for Chapters 1-3 and the Communication and Engagement Plan (Chapter 11) is now open.Submit Comment
