Groundwater Management Program
State Water Board SGMA Activities
The Sustainable Groundwater Management Act (SGMA) was enacted in order to halt overdraft and bring groundwater basins into balanced levels of pumping and recharge. SGMA requires local agencies adopt sustainability plans for high- and medium-priority groundwater basins. Under SGMA, basins must reach sustainability within 20 years of implementing their plans.
SGMA requires the State Water Board protect basins that are not managed sustainably through a process called State Intervention.
