Groundwater Sustainability Plan

SGA adopted a revised groundwater sustainability plan in December 2021. 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  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
