The Salinas Valley Basin Groundwater Sustainability Agency (SVBGSA) invites the public to attend upcoming workshops about a fee study currently I progress for the agency. The public is encouraged to attend to learn about potential fee structures and ask questions.

The SVBGSA is conducting the fee study as part of its efforts to comply with the statewide mandate to measure and secure future groundwater supplies under the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act (SGMA). Under SGMA, GSAs have the authority to collect fees to fund the costs of its regulatory activities including preparation, adoption, and amendment of groundwater sustainability plans, and investigation, inspections, compliance assistance, enforcement, and program administration, including a prudent reserve. Public involvement is an important part of the process.
