The water market study team is currently conducting stakeholder interviews, working to understand the perspective of individuals representative of MAGSA’s service area. Interviews are an opportunity for the study team to gather in depth feedback on preferences and perceptions for how a water market might be structured and will ultimately result in a water market design that fits the needs of MAGSA stakeholders and landowners. Once completed, the team will bring its findings to the Board for discussion.
The team is also working on developing varying water market options. The options look at different water supply scenarios such as groundwater allocation based on sustainable yield and potential surface water imports.
Stakeholders and landowners are encouraged to join the next Water Market Study workshop on Wednesday, October 21st from 4:00-6:00 PM. Check the website regularly for event updates.
