The SCV-GSA is responsible for sustainably managing groundwater in the Santa Clara River Valley East Subbasin.
The Subbasin is primarily located in the Santa Clarita Valley. Its western limit is near the Los Angeles-Ventura County Line and its eastern limit is generally along Highway 14. It includes the neighborhoods of Castaic, Stevenson Ranch, Valencia, Newhall, Saugus and Canyon Country.
The Sustainable Groundwater Management Act (SGMA) requires local water agencies to sustainably manage groundwater resources. By January 2022, the SCV-GSA will develop a Groundwater Sustainability Plan (GSP) tailored to the resources and needs within our community to maintain and improve resource management where necessary. The overall goal is to achieve sustainable groundwater management within 20 years.
