Groundwater and Urban Growth in the San Joaquin Valley

The Sustainable Groundwater Management Act (SGMA) will help the San Joaquin Valley address groundwater overdraft while also building its climate resilience. This will require hard work, not only by farmers—the largest groundwater users—but also by the valley’s urban water utilities. Research fellow Andrew Ayres presents on the center’s new research about how to ensure a smooth transition to groundwater sustainability for the region’s residents, and PPIC Water Policy Center director Ellen Hanak moderates a discussion with a panel of experts, including Raul Barraza, Jr., general manager of the Arvin Community Services District; Paul Gosselin, deputy director of the Department of Water Resources; and Luke Serpa, city manager of the City of Clovis.
