The Sustainable Groundwater Management Act (SGMA), effective January 1, 2015, established a framework of priorities and requirements to facilitate sustainable groundwater management throughout the State. The intent of SGMA is for groundwater to be managed by local public agencies and newly-formed Groundwater Sustainability Agencies (GSAs) to ensure a groundwater basin is operated within its sustainable yield through the development and implementation of a Groundwater Sustainability Plan (GSP). The East Contra Costa Subbasin (Basin), referred to as San Joaquin Valley-East Contra Costa (5-022.19), is a Medium priority groundwater basin based on the Groundwater Basin Prioritization by the State Department of Water Resources (DWR) and is located in eastern Contra Costa County.
Eight local agencies (including the City of Brentwood) that overlay the Basin entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) on May 9, 2017 to collaborate and develop a single GSP for the Basin. With one exception, each member agency of the Basin has become a Groundwater Sustainability Agency (GSA) to be the local agency to manage the Basin within their respective areas. Visit www.eccc-irwm.org/sgma for the complete list of member agencies.
