The long-anticipated document will be released to the media and the public the same day.

About the Framework

“Sustainability from the Ground Up: A Framework for Groundwater Management in California” offers an in-depth look at current groundwater management efforts and recommends proactive steps to advance sustainable management.

As the Framework notes, California has a long history of managing groundwater resources through locally controlled programs developed and refined over the past century. Many of these programs have been very effective, but the array of challenges on the horizon will demand even more of local agencies and require a greater commitment to ensuring that local decisions and management contribute to statewide water policy goals.

Developed over 18 months by a task force of local groundwater managers from throughout the state, the Framework highlights examples of successful local groundwater management efforts around the state, identifies groundwater management practices to address current and future challenges, and articulates specific policy needs and actions to help ensure the sustainability of California’s locally managed groundwater resources.
