California would adopt groundwater regulations for first time under bills headed to governor
from Bridge River Lillooet News
The worst drought in a generation has pushed California law-makers to overhaul the state's longstanding "pump-as-you-please" groundwater policy under a package of bills lawmakers sent recently to Gov. Jerry Brown. The state would begin regulating its groundwater supply for the first time under the legislative package by Assemblyman Roger Dickinson, D-Sacramento, and Sen. Fran Pavley, D-Agoura Hills. It would require some local governments to develop groundwater-management plans and allows the state to intervene if necessary.
