What is a GSP?

A Groundwater Sustainability Plan (GSP) is the state-mandated plan to sustainably manage groundwater. Each GSP will contain an assessment of each basin, measurable objectives that are specific, and quantifiable goals for the maintenance or improvement of specified groundwater conditions that lead to achieving the sustainability goal for the basin. A GSP must also include any necessary monitoring, management, enforcement, and other requirements to achieve and maintain sustainability.
