Abstract

California is entering a new era in how it manages its largest source of water storage — groundwater. Initial efforts implementing the state’s new Sustainable Groundwater Management Act must focus on getting local and state agencies organized and able to communicate with each other.

Here is how the contents of the local plans might be organized to support both local and statewide objectives for groundwater sustainability.
