The Groundwater Sustainability Plan (GSP) is a basin-wide plan that lays out a path for sustainable management of a groundwater basin over a 20-year period.
Napa County has released three GSP Workplans for review, along with a Combined Program Overview. NVG encourages you to engage with this process. You can do so via the comment forms, or at one of three upcoming workshops.
Public comments due January 30, 2024:
Combined Program Overview and 3 GSP Workplans
NVG's GSP Advocacy
NVG has worked for several years as a voice for growers, aiming to ensure a Groundwater Sustainability Plan that both meets the county’s environmental goals and takes into consideration how water is used in vineyards—and how these regulations will impact grape-growing operations. This advocacy includes representing members on the GSP Advisory Committee, providing regular public comment and presentations to the Technical Advisory Group (TAG) and Groundwater Sustainability Agency (GSA), and regular correspondence with county staff.
