California Water Layer Definitions
Tip: You can watch this video demo to see how the California water layer works.
Water Layer: Find the local agency responsible for the management and/or provision of water within the city or area.
SGMA Priority: The Sustainable Groundwater Management Act (SGMA) classifies basins as high, medium, low, or very low priority. Classification is based on components outlined in California Water Code Section 10933(b).
GSA: Groundwater Sustainability Agencies (GSAs) exercise responsibility for groundwater management in prioritized basins. They are formed by counties, cities, and irrigation districts in basins classified as high or medium priority.
Adjudicated Basins: Areas not subject to the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act in which a court has ruled on legal rights to water within a basin, group of basins, or surrounding areas.
Nebraska Water Layer Definitions
