California's Sustainable Groundwater Management Act (SGMA) requires the preparation and implementation of a Groundwater Sustainability Plan (GSP) for each High and Medium priority groundwater basin in the state. The Santa Ynez River Valley Groundwater Basin (Santa Ynez Basin) is a medium priority basin and must be managed under a GSP by January 31, 2022.

The primary purpose of this website is to facilitate communication with interested parties so they may participate in SGMA implementation, including development of a Groundwater Sustainability Plan (GSP).
