2019: Basin boundary modification request denied. Per DWR: “The boundary modification would revise a portion of the shared boundary between the Cosumnes and South American subbasins to expand and incorporate the jurisdictional areas of Sloughhouse Resource Conservation District and (SRCD) and Omochumne-Hartnell Water District (OHWD). The revised boundary would then follow the northern boundaries of the SRCD and OHWD jurisdictional boundaries. Four letters of support and two letters of opposition are associated with the request. Letters of opposition were provided by the Sacramento Central Groundwater Authority and the City of Sacramento. Five public comments (3 support, 2 oppose) were submitted on draft decision to deny the modification. The requesting agency did not sufficiently demonstrate the proposed modification would result in improved groundwater management. The request does not fully meet the requirements of the regulations.” Phase 2 draft priority: medium.
