Groundwater Management Plan

SGA adopted a revised groundwater management plan in December 2014. The authority to manage groundwater is granted to SGA through the Joint Powers Agreement executed between the County of Sacramento and the cities of Citrus Heights, Folsom, and Sacramento to use their commonly held police powers to manage the basin. The plan was prepared in compliance with Water Code Section 10753.7 resulting from the passage of SB 1938 in 2002 and considers components of a Groundwater Sustainability Plan resulting from passage of the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act of 2014.

The plan establishes a goal, management objectives, and the primary components needed to manage the basin. These components include:

  • Monitoring
  • Data Management
  • Data Analysis
  • Management Responses
