Stakeholders encouraged to review and comment on draft groundwater data policy
The MAGSA Board reviewed the preliminary draft groundwater data policy at their July 15th Board Meeting, releasing the draft for public review by stakeholders and landowners, the Technical Advisory and Stakeholder Committees.
The draft groundwater data policy can be reviewed, and comments submitted via MAGSA’s Board Policy webpage.
The groundwater data policy outlines methodologies for MAGSA to receive data from landowners and respond to data requests that ensure the confidentiality of data is maintained. It is the intent of MAGSA to protect landowner data to the maximum extent possible, unless otherwise released with permission from an individual landowner.
For consideration, public comments should be submitted no later than August 5, 2020. The policy is currently scheduled to go before the Board for consideration and adoption September 2, 2020.
