EMA GSA - Requests for Qualifications for Legal Counsel



The Santa Ynez Basin Eastern Management Area Groundwater Sustainability Agency (EMA GSA) was originally formed via a Memorandum of Agreement under the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act (SGMA).  The EMA GSA is in the process of transitioning to governance through a Joint Powers Agreement (expected July 16, 2024) to more effectively implement its Groundwater Sustainability Plan (GSP). As a result, the EMA GSA is seeking Statements of Qualification (SOQs) from qualified firms and individuals to serve as Legal Counsel of the GSA.
