Stakeholder Workshop Summaries




Groundwater Management Vision

Held Wednesday, September 23, 2020 • 3:00pm-5:00pm via Zoom Meetings

In this virtual workshop, attendees helped create a shared vision for what a “sustainable Bear Valley Basin” means. To inform the interactive exercise, the project team gave an overview of the purpose of the Groundwater Sustainability Plan (GSP) and the requirements of the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act (SGMA) in easy-to-understand terms. Next, they summarized key takeaways of the Basin Setting work completed to date, which describes the Basin’s unique geological makeup, historical groundwater use, potential challenges associated with groundwater management, and anticipated future groundwater use in the Basin. Further, they described the historical and current Water Budget. Stakeholder input documented in this workshop will be used to develop the guiding principles for the GSP and the Basin sustainability goal.
