Sustainable Groundwater Management

Placer County is part of the West Placer Groundwater Sustainability Agency, a multi-agency group aimed to implement the Sustainability Groundwater Management Act.

Placer County, along with the cities of Roseville and Lincoln, Placer County Water AgencyNevada Irrigation District and in participation with the California American Water Company, will manage portions of the North American groundwater basin (PDF) and implement activities that preserve and enhance the current state of the resource for our communities, agriculture and the environment. This will involve the development of a Groundwater Sustainability Plan by 2022.
