Well Monitoring Pilot Program Public Workshop

The Colusa Groundwater Authority (CGA) and Glenn Groundwater Authority (GGA) will host an online workshop on January 25, 2021. The purpose is to engage and inform growers and landowners who may want to participate in a Well Monitoring Pilot Program (Pilot Program). This voluntary, non-regulatory program will gather information about groundwater use in the Colusa Subbasin. It will provide participants near-real-time access to information on production and groundwater levels at their wells as a way to support their irrigation management. Interested growers and landowners will work with the CGA and GGA to continuously monitor groundwater use and water levels for three years at participating wells starting prior to the 2021 growing season. Funding is provided through the Water Quality, Supply, and Infrastructure Improvement Act of 2014 and the California Drought, Water, Parks, Climate, Coastal Protection, and Outdoor Access For All Act of 2018 (Proposition 68) administered by the CGA through an agreement with the California Department of Water Resources.

During this workshop, the CGA and GGA will:

  • Provide an overview of the Pilot Program
  • Describe incentives and responsibilities for interested participants
  • Review the application process
  • Describe selection criteria for applications received, and
  • Answer questions about the Pilot Program

“This is really a win-win for us” said Jim Wallace, Director with the CGA. “We’re required to have the best information to ensure our Groundwater Sustainability Plan is approved and that we can manage our resources locally and avoid State intervention. Many of our neighbors could also really benefit from new technologies to better manage their irrigation sources. This Program gets us both of these.”
