Groundwater Sustainability Plan

The Groundwater Sustainability Plan for the Santa Rosa Plain Subbasin (GSP) was submitted to the California Department of Water Resources (DWR) in January, 2022. The GSP establishes a standard for sustainability of groundwater management and use, and determines how the basin will achieve this standard by 2042. The GSP can be viewed below.
