SCV-GSA wants your input!
The Agency is seeking qualified candidates to fill vacancies on the SCV-GSA Stakeholder Advisory Committee (SAC). The SAC provides the SCV-GSA with insight, support, and expertise on various social, cultural, and economic issues impacting groundwater management in the Santa Clarita Valley.
The SAC is to represent environmental interests, groundwater pumpers, business, and members-at-large.
The SAC reviews workshop information and materials, considers various Groundwater Sustainability Plan (“GSP”) components and makes recommendations that are considered by the SCV-GSA Board of Directors (“Board”) and staff. Feedback from the SAC will play an important role in helping SCV-GSA develop a fair and equitable Groundwater Sustainability Plan.
SCV-GSA is seeking representatives from specific stakeholder groups. All applicants must have a direct connection to the stakeholder group they are representing, and criteria for each group are described in the Stakeholder Advisory Committee Guidelines. An applicant to the SAC may only apply to represent a single stakeholder group from the list below:
- 1 representative of medium pumpers (Greater than two to 25 acre-feet per year);
- 1 representative of small pumpers (Up to two acre-feet or less per year);
- 1 member-at-large
The SAC will review and provide input on topics to be presented at those workshops, then help incorporate the public comments received into the GSP. Some of these topics will include basin setting, groundwater/surface water interaction and sustainability criteria, among others.
Subject to the Brown Act, all SAC meetings will be open to the public.
