The GSAs in the Subbasin work together through the Solano Collaborative to implement the Groundwater Sustainability Plan (GSP) in a cost-effective manner. The Solano Subbasin GSA provides ongoing GSA coordination and outreach activities to facilitate SGMA compliance and support groundwater sustainability
The Solano Collaborative also works to secure grant funds to support GSP implementation. GSA, state, landowner and philanthropic investments are all important in groundwater sustainability.
The California Department of Water Resources (DWR) operates the Sustainable Groundwater Management Grant Program. The Solano Subbasin is one of 32 groundwater subbasins on the Recommended Round 2 Award List.
The Westside Integrated Regional Water Management (IRWM) maintains a list of funding opportunities here: Grant Funding Sources Spreadsheet 2023
California is taking a statewide approach to planning and maintaining water supplies. The state’s Water Plan Update 2023 and California Water Resilience Portfolio pages for more information about these efforts.
Background and Charges
The Collaborative developed a Five-Year Budget to cover both operational and implementation related costs. The Solano Subbasin GSA serves as the fiscal agent on behalf of Subbasin GSAs in Solano County. To support these required efforts, the Solano Subbasin GSA pursued funding needs through Proposition 218.
The table below shows SGMA compliance requirements, which include monitoring and reporting on groundwater in the Subbasin, evaluation of groundwater conditions, submission of reports to DWR, and comprehensive updates to the GSP every five years. Submitted Reports can be viewed here.
