The North Kings GSA staff continues to prioritize well permit review on behalf of landowners and drillers under a new process with Fresno County. The new process includes the North Kings GSA in permit review in response to Governor Newsom’s Executive Order N-7-22, signed on March 28, 2022.
The Order directs that no well permits may be approved by permitting agencies (in this case, Fresno County) until first approved by the Groundwater Sustainability Agency (GSA) managing the area where the well is proposed. Since the Order was signed, the North Kings GSA has coordinated closely with the County to roll out an efficient process that gets well permits reviewed as quickly as possible.
If you are experiencing a delay with your well permit application, the North Kings GSA is here to help.
