Grant Application Period Open for Sustainable Groundwater Planning

November 20, 2015
The Department of Water Resources (DWR) has released the final versions of the Sustainable Groundwater Planning grant program guidelines and proposal solicitation package for counties with stressed basins.
 
DWR has $10 million in Proposition 1 funds immediately available to update or develop local ordinances and groundwater plans to facilitate basin-wide sustainable groundwater management. Eligibility is restricted to stressed, unadjudicated basins. A basin is stressed when it is in critical overdraft, or it exhibits a reduction in groundwater storage, sea water intrusion, degradation of groundwater quality, land subsidence or surface water depletion.
 
Applications for this grant opportunity are due by 5 p.m. on Dec. 8 and awards will be made in February 2016.
