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.
