Attached are my notes from the 10-13-21 Santa Rosa Plain Ground Water Basin Hearing.

Hopefully, they make sense to anyone who was not able to attend.

Release of Final Draft Groundwater Sustainability Plans and Opportunity to Comment at Upcoming Community Meetings

Sonoma County’s three groundwater sustainability agencies, Petaluma Valley, Sonoma Valley and Santa Rosa Plain, are releasing the Final Draft Groundwater Sustainability Plans (GSPs) on October 1.

The GSPs assess the conditions of the groundwater basin, analyze the basin’s sustainability over a 50-year period, and identifies projects and actions needed to ensure the basin is sustainable by 2042.

The public comment period for the GSPs is October 1 through October 31.

Members of the public are invited to attend an upcoming virtual community meeting to learn about the GSP for their basin and for information on how to provide comments.

Petaluma Valley – Thursday, October 7

Sonoma Valley – Tuesday, October 12

Santa Rosa Plain- Wednesday, October 13

All meetings are 5:30-7:30 p.m. and will be held virtually through Zoom.

The GSPs are available online at:

Santa Rosa Plain GSP

Sonoma Valley GSP

Petaluma Valley GSP

Comments may be made by using the online comment form.

Hard copies of the GSPs will be available for review at the following locations:

Petaluma Valley: Petaluma Regional Library, 100 Fairgrounds Dr.

Sonoma Valley: Sonoma Valley Regional Library, 755 W Napa St.

Santa Rosa Plain: Central Santa Rosa Library, 211 E St.
