The Sustainable Groundwater Management Act (SGMA), in Water Code §10729(c), directs the Department of Water Resources (DWR) to prepare a report on water available for replenishment (WAFR) in California. This report presents DWR’s best estimate, based on available information, of water available for replenishment of groundwater in the state.

SGMA advisory groups and stakeholders have provided valuable input to DWR that helped guide the content and scope of this effort.

Public comments received by March 10, 2017 will be considered for the final report to be published later this year. Please email comments to sgmps@water.ca.gov with the following subject line: Public Comments on WAFR Report.
