Groundwater Sustainability Assessments in California
California passed the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act (SGMA) almost a decade ago as a step to bring the states’ depleted groundwater aquifers to sustainability. With increased droughts, the implementation of SGMA and protection of vulnerable communities dependent on small water systems and domestic wells is urgent. Over the last 2 years, Clean Water Action has reviewed and analyzed over 95 groundwater sustainability plans, in every groundwater basin covered by SGMA, closely evaluating the steps local agencies are taking to protect vulnerable communities.

The Environmental Justice for All Act (H.R. 2021), introduced by Rep Raul Grijalva and Rep Donald McEachin, is a long overdue package of reforms that will help address the history of environmental injustice that has led to undue burdens of pollution on people of color and low-income communities.
SGMA and Underrepresented Farmers: Impact of Groundwater Sustainability Plans on Underrepresented Farmers
