We are committed to the safety and health of our community across all aspects of our stakeholder engagement experience. We will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation and modify the details of this event to ensure your safety and your continued opportunity to provide valuable input into the development of the SLO Basin Groundwater Sustainability Plan. This includes moving some workshops to webinar format, and using virtual meeting technology where possible. To keep you informed as workshop details change, registration is now required for all stakeholder workshops. This will allow us to keep you informed of workshop details and location in real time.
WHAT TO EXPECT: In this educational and interactive workshop, stakeholder perceptions will be collected to inform the preliminary set of projects and management actions to reach sustainability in the SLO Basin. The team will begin with a summary of the values, perceptions and input shared by stakeholders in workshops 2-3 and how it was used to inform the management areas, representative wells, minimum thresholds, and measurable objectives outlined in Chapters 7-8. They?ll re-introduce what Sustainable Management Criteria (SMCs) are, what SGMA requires, the minimum thresholds and measurable objectives recommended that have been determined for each SMC, and what role the GSC and GSAs play in achieving these outcomes for the SLO Basin. The team will introduce the concept of the implementation plan and intermediate check-ins required by SGMA, and how both will be used in concert with the objectives to keep the plan adaptable in real time. In the last half of the workshop, participants will break into small group discussions with a groundwater expert. Using a framework provided by presenters, each group will provide input on the benefits, impact, and implications of several types of projects and management actions, and they?ll have the opportunity to add new ideas for consideration.
A SUMMARY OF STAKEHOLDER INPUT FROM THIS WORKSHOP WILL BE PROVIDED TO GSC AND GSAS TO INFORM THE NEXT STEP IN THE PROCESS.
