Tri-Valley Ground Water Management District




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.
