Cuyama Valley Groundwater Basin

Cuyama Basin Groundwater Sustainability Agency

The Cuyama Basin GSA (CBGSA) recently formed through a Joint Power Agreement (JPA) and submitted the required information on June 12, 2017 to DWR to initiate the 90 day period to become a groundwater sustainability agency. The CBGSA includes the County of San Luis Obispo, the County of Ventura, the County of Kern, Santa Barbara County Water Agency, Cuyama Basin Water District (CBWD), and Cuyama Community Services District. The CBGSA is represented by an eleven (11) member Board of Directors. On May 23, 2017, the County of San Luis Obispo Board of Supervisors appointed the District 4 Supervisor, Lynn Compton, as the director representing the County and the District 5 Supervisor, Debbie Arnold, as the alternate director representing the County.
