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 released three GSP Workplans for review, along with a Combined Program Overview. NVG attended public workshops regarding these workplans and has submitted a comment letter, which you can access below, to advocate for growers and aid the County in understanding effective water mitigation strategies in Napa County vineyards.
NVG's Advocacy on the GSP
NVG has worked for several years as a voice for growers, aiming to ensure that the state-mandated GSP takes into consideration how water is used in vineyards and how these regulations will impact grape-growing operations.
NVG is also a committed community partner in meeting the county’s environmental goals related to ensuring the health of the subbasin. 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.
