Board approves budget for fiscal year 2024-25 with significant efforts planned for the year ahead 

The Board of Directors unanimously approved the fiscal year 2024-25 budget at the June 27th meeting. This budget, the largest approved by the Board, allocates sufficient funds to implement the programs and projects required to address the corrective actions outlined by the CA Department of Water Resources (DWR) in its review of the Groundwater Sustainability Plan.

The budget includes $500,000 allocated to launch the Domestic Well Mitigation Program and $200,000 to invest in improvements in the representative monitoring well network.

The Domestic Well Mitigation Program is a coordinated effort between the seven Kings Subbasin GSAs and will address impacts to domestic wells (drinking water wells) affected by declining groundwater levels. Expediting implementation of the program, the Kings Subbasin is addressing one of the corrective actions mandated by CA DWR.

Investing in the representative monitoring well network will enable the agency to increase its groundwater level data in its boundaries. Having this additional data will support the North Kings GSA when making decisions as it relates to current groundwater levels and the need to implement management actions if the groundwater level conditions warrant such actions.

The approved budget also includes funding for Kings Subbasin coordination activities, engineering consulting costs, public information and outreach efforts, executive officer expenses, and supporting staff expenses.
