Local Watersheds, and the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act
Executive Director, Butte Environmental Council

The purpose of California’s Sustainable Groundwater Management Act (SGMA) is to ensure long-term, sustainable management of the state’s groundwater. The law requires extensive local implementation measures, as each county was required to create a Groundwater Sustainability Agency (GSA) by June 2017. In this presentation, the speakers discuss activities that are taking place in Butte County to comply with SGMA. The presenters focus on the groundwater characteristics of Butte County – including such factors as geology – and the efforts to implement SGMA.
