A top producer of fruit and fiber, agriculture in the Kaweah Subbasin depends on groundwater. The Greater Kaweah will be developing groundwater management strategies to maintain agriculture’s strength and viability.
The Greater Kaweah GSA (Greater) was formed with the intent to comply with the 2014 Sustainable Groundwater Management Act , or SGMA, and initiated their effort by executing a Joint Powers Authority (JPA) on August 23, 2016. The Greater became an “exclusive” GSA for the area of coverage by the California Department of Water Resources in August 2017.

Public Call For Projects and Management Actions
The GKGSA is soliciting concept proposals for projects and management actions that are consistent with the region's groundwater sustainability objectives.
Household Water Supply Shortage Reporting System
The California Department of Water Resources has developed a form for use by individuals not on a public water system who are experiencing problems with their water supply and agencies receiving calls from those individuals. The information collected from the form is intended to inform state and local agencies on drought impacts on household water supplies. If you are facing water supply issues due to the drought, visit the link to fill out the reporting form.
