SGMA

The Sustainable Groundwater Management Act (SGMA) is a 2014 California law that requires groundwater to be sustainably managed over a long period. This means the amount of groundwater that can be taken every year cannot, overtime, create lower groundwater levels and/or:
  • Harm water quality
  • Deplete creeks, streams and rivers (or other connected water)
  • Create land subsidence
  • Cause seawater to seep in
  • Cause other significant and adverse impacts
