On April 5, 2017, the public is invited to participate in the second of two Stakeholder Forums to receive an update on the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act (SGMA) and provide input regarding a draft proposed governance structure. An agenda for the April 5, 2017 meeting will be provided on Castaic Lake Water Agency’s website in advance of the meeting.

SGMA (a package of three bills AB 1739, SB1168 and SB 1319) provides a framework for sustainable management of groundwater resources by local agencies. SGMA requires that the groundwater sustainability agencies (GSAs) be formed by June 30, 2017. The GSA will then be responsible for developing a Groundwater Sustainability Plan by 2022 that will achieve sustainability by 2042.

Currently, Castaic Lake Water Agency (CLWA), CLWA Santa Clarita Water Division, Los Angeles County Waterworks District #36, Newhall County Water District, Valencia Water Company and others including the City of Santa Clarita and County of Los Angeles are working together to explore GSA formation options for the Santa Clara River East Valley Subbasin.

The second Stakeholder Forum is scheduled for Wednesday, April 5, 2017 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at Castaic Lake Water Agency, 27234 Bouquet Canyon Road, Santa Clarita 91350.

The GSA Formation Work Group consists of Castaic Lake Water Agency, CLWA Santa Clarita Water Division, Los Angeles County Waterworks District #36, Newhall County Water District, Valencia Water Company and others including the City of Santa Clarita and County of Los Angeles.
