McMullin Area Groundwater Sustainability Agency

The McMullin Area Groundwater Sustainability Agency (GSA) was formed on January 31, 2017 when Fresno County, Raisin City Water District, and Mid-Valley Water District executed the McMullin Area Groundwater Sustainability Agency Joint Powers Agreement. This agreement formed a groundwater sustainability agency under the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act (SGMA) for the McMullin Area. Signed into State law in September 2014, SGMA provides a framework for local governments and water agencies to manage groundwater agencies to manage groundwater resources through the formation of Groundwater Sustainability Agencies.

The McMullin Area GSA is authorized under SGMA to develop, adopt, and implement a Groundwater Sustainability Plan for the sustainable management of groundwater in a portion of the Kings Subbasin. It is one of over 250 newly formed agencies in the State of California created and tasked with implementing SGMA, and one of seven GSAs within the Kings Subbasin.
