Why a Fee Study?
Under the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act, GSAs have the authority to collect fees to fund the operational costs of the GSA and of a groundwater sustainability program. Costs include preparation, adoption, and amendment of a groundwater sustainability plan, and investigations, inspections, compliance assistance, enforcement, and program administration, including a judicious reserve.
The GSA has contracted a firm to explore options and determine funding options that are fair for the community and provide the revenue needed for the GSA to operate.
Who is Affected?
Groundwater users within the boundaries established by the Salinas Valley Basin Groundwater Management Agency.
