Mind the Gaps, The Case for Truly Comprehensive Sustainable Groundwater Management
- In 2014, California took a major step toward sustainable groundwater with the passage of the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act. While a positive step forward in many respects, under SGMA implementation three major gaps in California’s regulation of groundwater pumping remain: brackish groundwater, non-alluvial groundwater basins and basins ranked by the state as lower priority. These gaps can cause serious harm to communities and ecosystems, and therefore must be addressed if California truly wishes to manage its groundwater sustainably.
