In the wake of the State’s historic drought, local agencies have come together to address the region’s groundwater and how they’ll manage the precious resource.
“In late March of this year, the City of Visalia, the City of Tulare and the Tulare Irrigation District finalized the decision to form the Mid-Kaweah Groundwater Sustainability Agency (GSA),” says Michael Olmos, City Manager, City of Visalia. “We need the public’s ideas and input, now the time has come to recruit citizens to serve on the GSA’s Advisory Committee.”
As the GSA makes plans to manage groundwater levels, water recharge and storage facilities for water consumers, the Advisory Committee will serve the greater GSA as a tool to help shape the Groundwater Sustainability Plan for the Mid-Kaweah region.
The first meeting of the Mid-Kaweah GSA Advisory Committee will be held Monday, May 9th at 4 p.m. at the Tulare Irrigation District offices. This meeting is open to the public.
