The McMullin Area Groundwater Sustainability Agency (MAGSA) is reengaging consultants to determine what rules might be required to move forward with a water marketing strategy in MAGSA. This process will include landowner input on the proposed program.
As part of the region’s Groundwater Sustainability Plan (GSP), MAGSA identified development of a groundwater marketing strategy as an important tactic to help MAGSA landowners comply with potential future pumping limits and provide additional operational flexibility for agricultural lands.
In 2020 and 2021, MAGSA worked with a technical consultant to generate a Water Marketing Report. This report includes several sections describing background conditions and issues related to a groundwater market, followed by a “roadmap” for continued development and implementation of a groundwater market in MAGSA. This report along with recordings of past water marketing workshops can be viewed on the webpage below.
