In September 2014, Governor Jerry Brown signed legislation requiring that California's critical groundwater resources be sustainably managed by local agencies. The Sustainable Groundwater Management Act (SGMA) established specific requirements for how certain groundwater basins were to be managed over the long-term. There are four groundwater basins in Siskiyou County that fall under the requirements of SGMA, and the County is currently developing a plan and working with stakeholders to carry out the requirements of SGMA. Please refer to the links below to learn more about SGMA, and the work being done in Siskiyou County.
