Groundwater Sustainability Agencies

A Groundwater Sustainability Agency is one or more local governmental agencies that implement the provisions of SGMA. A local agency is defined as one that has water supply, water management or land management authority. GSAs assess the conditions of their local basins, adopt locally-based sustainable management plans to create drought resiliency and improve coordination between land use and groundwater planning.

The Eastern San Joaquin Groundwater Authority has created a map of the GSAs. This GIS Map Application showing all GSAs can be viewed by clicking here.
