The Mid-Kaweah GSA is a local public agency formed by the City of Visalia, the City of Tulare and the Tulare Irrigation District in response to state passage of the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act (SGMA) of 2014.

The agency is currently developing a Groundwater Sustainability Plan (GSP), slated to adoption by the statutory deadline of Jan. 31, 2020.

An 11-member panel, the Advisory Committee provides decision making support to the Mid-Kaweah GSA Board of Directors through input on technical studies conducted to develop the agency’s GSP, and oversees public and stakeholder outreach intended to develop a GSP that accomplishes the region’s groundwater needs consistent with SGMA.

Applicants to the Mid-Kaweah GSA Advisory Committee must be residents or associated with a business in within the jurisdictional area of the agency.

All applications will be reviewed by the GSA Management Committee, previously submitted applications will also be reviewed, after which time recommendations for appointment will potentially be made.
