Groundwater Sustainability Plan (GSP)
Groundwater Sustainability Plan
Groundwater Sustainability Plan (GSP) – A plan developed by a GSA to achieve sustainability pursuant to the SGMA.
The San Joaquin River Exchange Contractors GSA (SJREC GSA) worked with 10 neighboring GSA’s to develop a joint GSP. The main body of the GSP was developed for the SJREC GSA with a discrete chapter for each partner GSA in the plan.
The GSP was adopted by the SJREC GSA on December 13, 2019.
The GSP has been amended in response to the January 21, 2022 DWR Determination letter to Delta-Mendota Subbasin’s Point of Contact that included evaluation of the San Joaquin River GSA’s Groundwater Sustainability Plan (GSP). The amended plan is scheduled to be before the SJRECGSA Board to be considered for adoption on July 5th 2022.
The California Department of Water Resources (DWR) has developed some useful tools to aid in GSP development. See below for some links to the DWR tools.
