The California State Water Resources Control Board (SWRCB) will host a public meeting on October 7, 2016 to solicit input on its development of a regulatory fees schedule for probationary and unmanaged basins under the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act of 2014 (SGMA). The meeting will take place from 1:30pm to 4:30pm at the CalEPA Building in Sacramento.

The objectives of the stakeholder meetings are as follows:

  • Engage stakeholders in the SGMA fee schedule development process.
  • Explain issues considered in drafting the proposed fee schedule.
  • Gain a better understanding of stakeholder interests and concerns.

Following the stakeholder meetings, SWRCB staff will develop and release a draft fee schedule emergency regulation for public comment and hold at least one public meeting to receive public comment on the draft emergency regulation. The State Water Board will consider adoption of the proposed fee schedule emergency regulation in spring 2017. The fee schedule must be effective by July 1, 2017.
