Ad Hoc Sustainable Groundwater Committee

BMP December meetingFormer BMP Committee Meeting Purpose

PV Water has formed an Ad Hoc Sustainable Groundwater Committee (Committee) to evaluate technical information presented by staff and consultants related to the existing and projected conditions of the groundwater basin, consider sustainable management criteria that would avoid significant and unreasonable impacts to the groundwater basin, and make recommendations to the PV Water Board.

The Committee is comprised of 17 voting members, 12 appointed, and 5 selected through an open application process. The composition of the Committee is structured to provide a diverse representative cross-section of community stakeholder interests, as well as incorporate water managers within the Pajaro Valley. Attendance and engagement at Committee meetings by the public and other interested parties is highly encouraged to provide input.  Voting seats are dedicated to individuals serving as representatives for the Committee members listed below.

On October 14, 2020, the Committee voted in favor of adopting bylaws. The Board of Directors approved the bylaws during its October 21, 2020 meeting.
