2024 GSP Determinations

On March 2nd 2023 Groundwater Sustainability Agencies (GSAs) in the Kaweah Subbasin received an inadequate determination notice from the California Department of Water Resources (DWR) regarding the submission of the 2022 Groundwater Sustainability Plan (GSP) updates.  This inadequate determination shifts primary determination from DWR to the State Water Resources Control Board (SWRCB). DWR and the SWRCB summarized the deficiencies of the 2022 First Amended GSP in the letters below.

 

2024 GSP Revisions

The Mid-Kaweah Groundwater Sustainability Agency (MKGSA) has been working with the Greater Kaweah GSA and the East Kaweah GSA to address the deficiencies outlined by DWR.  Kaweah Subbasin managers, legal counsel, staff, and consultants have been meeting multiple times weekly to do the technical analysis and revisions to the GSPs required by DWR under SGMA compliance.  Provided below are the current revisions to the MKGSA GSP for review.

 

On June 13, 2024 the MKGSA and the other Kaweah Subbasin GSAs released the drafts of the GSPs for public comment.  Below are the public drafts for your review.  

2024 Mitigation Program and Plan

Kaweah Subbasin Mitigation Program Framework establishes minimum requirement for mitigation of wells and critical infrastructure demonstrated to have been adversely affected by declining groundwater levels, land subsidence, and groundwater quality degradation associated with groundwater overdraft. The Mitigation Program Framework applies to all 3 GSAs in the Kaweah Subbasin.

 

The Mid-Kaweah GSA Mitigation Plan describes a detailed process for mitigating impacts on domestic and small community water system wells adversely affected by declining groundwater levels, land subsidence, and degraded groundwater quality. Unlike the Mitigation Program, the MKGSA Mitigation Plan is GSA-specific.
