Groundwater accounts for approximately 40 percent of California’s water supply during average climatic conditions. This percentage increases to nearly 60 percent during dry years or periods of drought (California Department of Water Resources [DWR], 2013). Despite its importance, California lacked a statewide framework for regulating the resource until passage of the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act (SGMA) in 2014.
