The Truckee Donner Public Utility District, Northstar Community Services District, Placer County Water Agency, Town of Truckee, Nevada County and Placer County (local SGMA agencies) in the Martis Valley Groundwater Basin (MVGB) put forth an Alternative Submittal in December, 2016 in compliance with California’s Sustainable Groundwater Management Act of 2014 (SGMA). The local SGMA agencies hired a licensed engineering firm (GEI Consultants) to certify the MVGB alternative submittal.
The Alternative Submittal and supporting GEI document contain information on SGMA, the requirements for an alternative submittal, and a report certifying that the MVGB has operated within the sustainable yield for at least 25 years.
