The Salinas Valley Basin Groundwater Sustainability Agency is governed by an eleven-member Board of Directors. The Board meets monthly to implement the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act in the Salinas Valley Groundwater Basin; all meetings are open to the public.

Voting

Each Director has one vote, and the Board requires a simple majority (six Directors) for routine business, a super majority (eight Directors) for approving the Groundwater Sustainability Plan, budgets, and member termination, and a super majority plus (eight Directors, including three of the Agricultural Directors) for imposing fees and or pumping limits.
