A roll up your sleeves, partner with others, sweat the details workshop. We will provide participants a series of applied, table top exercises designed to tackle some of the most compelling technical and policy challenges SGMA throws at us. The day will start with a set of brief, critically important presentations to frame the subsequent workshop activities. After a mid-morning break, participants will group together and with guidance from colleagues currently writing GSPs throughout the State, and with input from DWR SGMA technical staff, we will work through a set of exercises designed to mirror technical and planning challenges you will face in your basins.
