Title: SGMA: Challenges of Sustainably Managing Groundwater
Abstract: The Sustainable Groundwater Management Act, enacted in January 2015, established compliance milestones for reaching sustainable groundwater management. This session presents experiences and lessons learned in the pursuit of achieving the sustainability goal. The speakers draw from case studies and data derived from specific adjudicated basins where the goal of groundwater sustainability is a critical component of a workable water rights settlement or judgement by examining sustainability indicators that are also identified in SGMA.
