Residents can learn and give their input at an online Groundwater Sustainability Plan Workshop next month, according to SCV Water officials.
The web conference is set to be held by the SCV Groundwater Sustainability Agency on Wednesday, August 5 at 4 p.m.
Those who choose to attend can take advantage of the opportunity to “learn and to provide input on plans to sustain our water supply as we continue the process of developing a Groundwater Sustainability Plan (GSP),” said officials with SCV Water.
Tailored to fit the needs and resources of the community locally, the GSP must be adopted by January 2022, according to officials.
Topics for the workshop include local ecosystems and the groundwater/surface water connection.
“In this public workshop, attendees will have an opportunity to learn from experts as they explain information that relates to how groundwater and surface water interact, and second, the process that took place to identify potential groundwater-dependant ecosystems along the river,” said SCV Water officials.
The presentation on groundwater and surface water interaction looks at historical information and some of the most important factors that play a role in how surface water and groundwater interact along the river.
The presentation on mapping potential groundwater dependent ecosystems (GDEs) will explain the methods and guidelines used to map potential GDEs and what has been learned so far.
GDEs are ecological communities of plant and animal species that depend on groundwater emerging from aquifers or on groundwater occurring near the ground surface.
Following the presentations, those in attendance can ask questions, submit comment forms and browse videos and handouts through a virtual resource center, SCV Water officials said.
