What is the goal of the GSP?

The goal of SGMA is to ensure that local or regional agencies have the necessary support and authority to properly manage groundwater resources through the use of information and evaluations to protect communities, farms, and the environment against prolonged dry periods and climate change, and to preserve water supplies for existing and potential beneficial uses. The goal is eliminating all undesirable results within 20 years of GSP approval and continue to sustainably manage the subbasin over the next 50 years and beyond.
