Cosumnes Subbasin SGMA Working Group

The Working Group is guided by a near-term framework agreement that describes how the GSAs will work together in the next six to twelve months.

October 2017 Workshops | Summary

In October 2017, the Water Forum and local groundwater agencies held a series of three public workshops across the Cosumnes Subbasin. The workshops offered an opportunity for local residents to learn more about the Cosumnes Subbasin’s efforts to meet the requirements of the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act (SGMA) and to share input on how their area can best implement SGMA locally.
