Groundwater Conservation Plan

Increasing water demands, extreme weather variability, and mandated reductions in use make year-round conservation an important tool in managing groundwater. To improve water-use efficiency, municipal, industrial, and irrigation permit holders are required to implement an individual conservation program and then document their efforts on a triennial basis. Successful GCPs require implementation of Best Management Practices (BMPs)—practices proven to achieve measurable water savings.


A list of BMPs for Municipal, Industrial, and Irrigation permit holders can be found below, along with the Groundwater Conservation Plan Application and Triennial Status Report form for the current year.
