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.  The JPA members and partners consist of:

– Kaweah Delta Water Conservation District

– Kings County Water District

– Lakeside Irrigation Water District

– St. Johns Water District

– Tulare County

– California Water Service Company

The Greater is one of three GSA formed in the Kaweah Sub-basin that, in total, cover the entire Sub-basin without overlap.  The three GSAs will each develop Groundwater Sustainability Plans, and the three are collectively working together to develop a Coordination Agreement for the Sub-basin to utilize the same data and methodologies ensuring consistent interpretations of the basin setting.
