Groundwater Sustainability Plan (GSP) Development
Triggering State Intervention
While every effort is being made to retain local control of SGMA implementation, the State Water Resources Control Board (SWRCB) may intervene in a basin or subbasin if local agencies do not form GSAs before the deadline of June 30, 2017 and/or fail to adopt and implement an acceptable GSP by January 31, 2020.
In the case of State Intervention, the SWRCB would impose a fee structure on groundwater pumpers many times more costly than what will likely be proposed by GSAs over the course of implementing SGMA. State Intervention is likely to result in unfavorable restrictions without the provision of local provisions, like project development.
