The Kaweah Subbasin Water Marketing Strategy (Strategy) is a two- to three- year project to develop a Water Marketing Strategy to prepare for the possible future exchange of limited groundwater allocations to reach groundwater sustainability compliance under the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act (SGMA). An eleven (11) member Committee is currently being formed to guide the Strategy, and will make decisions on the proposed Water Market’s parameters, rules and management. The final Water Marketing Strategy document will provide instruction to the three (3) Kaweah Subbasin Groundwater Sustainability Agencies (Mid-Kaweah, East Kaweah and Greater Kaweah GSAs) on how to operate a functioning groundwater allocation trading Market which may be used for the Subbasin as a whole to reach its goal of attaining groundwater balance and overall sustainability by 2040.
