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
