In Case You Missed It! The Environment Needs Groundwater: Guidance for SGMA Implementation

On April 20th, 2017 Clean Water Fund hosted another Groundwater Matters webinar with The Nature Conservancy. The Nature Conservancy discussed the technical guide and maps they developed to identify and assess Groundwater Dependent Ecosystems (GDE).The Nature Conservancy provided a better understanding of the interconnectedness of surface water and groundwater, and how to use the GDE Map tool to assess if GDEs require consideration in certain basins when setting measurable objectives and minimum thresholds in GSPs.

The PowerPoint is available to view here:
