About MWD GSA
With the passage of the California Sustainable Groundwater Management Act (SGMA) in 2014, the Madera Water District Groundwater Sustainability Agency (MWD GSA) and its Board of Directors are participating in the implementation of the SGMA regulations and working to protect the interests of the landowners within the MWD GSA boundary.
The Madera Water District is an agricultural water district and the MWD GSA currently manages only those beneficial uses that are agricultural in nature.
