Cuyama Valley Groundwater Basin

 

(For the email mailing list, please scroll to the bottom of this webpage.)

 

The Cuyama Valley Groundwater Basin, DWR Bulletin 118 Basin No. 3-13, is situated between the Caliente Range to the north and the Sierra Madre Mountains to the southwest. The valley trends east and is drained by the Cuyama River which is the primary source of recharge to the groundwater basin. The basin overlies an area of approximately 147,200 acres (230 square miles) which extends into four counties, including San Luis Obispo County, Santa Barbara County, Kern County, and Ventura County. The basin area in San Luis Obispo County is approximately 32,600 acres (51 square miles).

 

In 2015, the State legislature approved a new groundwater management law known as the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act (SGMA). SGMA requires that high and medium priority basins comply with the new law. DWR designated the Cuyama Valley Groundwater Basin as a medium priority basin and designated the basin to be in a "condition of critical overdraft." The map below shows those areas subject to SGMA.

The CBGSA is represented by an eleven (11) member Board of Directors.
