The Formation Committee for the proposed Upper Ventura River Groundwater Sustainability Agency (GSA) held a second stakeholder meeting on January 28, 2016. The purpose of the meeting was to provide an update on the status of the agency’s formation and solicit input and ideas.

Three presentations were provided at the meeting. They covered California’s new Sustainable Groundwater Management Act (SGMA), the five public agencies that comprise the Formation Committee working to form the Upper Ventura River GSA, and the proposed modification to the Upper Ventura River Groundwater Basin’s current boundaries.
