GSI, teamed with GEI Consultants, is helping to develop a GSP that will be accepted by the California Department of Water Resources and represent basin stakeholders’ diverse interests. The GSP, due by January 2022 under the state’s Sustainable Groundwater Management Act (SGMA), will allow the San Antonio Basin GSA to plan for and secure a reliable water supply in the future.
GSI is using data and information recently developed by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) to characterize groundwater conditions in the San Antonio Creek Groundwater Basin to reduce the cost of preparing the GSP. We are working with USGS to use its groundwater model to develop water budgets and assess various groundwater management alternatives intended to recover groundwater to sustainable levels. GSI is also supporting stakeholder outreach efforts.
