The Greater Kaweah Groundwater Sustainability Agency (Greater Kaweah GSA) was formed with the intent to comply with the 2014 Sustainable Groundwater Management Act (SGMA) and initiated its effort by executing a Joint Powers Agreement (JPA) on August 23, 2016.  The Greater Kaweah GSA became an “exclusive” GSA for its service area 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 Kaweah GSA is one of three GSAs formed in the Kaweah Subbasin that, in total, cover the entire Subbasin without overlap.  The three GSAs have each developed Groundwater Sustainability Plans (GSPs) and executed a Coordination Agreement for the Subbasin to utilize the same data and methodologies ensuring consistent interpretations of the Basin Setting.
