A proposed plan to govern groundwater use in the Cosumnes Subbasin for the next two decades will be aired during a public workshop on March 24 that will be conducted online and at two in-person locations. The meeting is an opportunity for South Sacramento County residents to understand and comment on proposals that include reducing irrigation of agricultural land and increasing replenishment of the underground aquifer.

The workshop will be conducted virtually from 6:30 to 8 p.m. on Wednesday, March 24 and simultaneously will be shown on screens at the Herald Fire Station on Ivie Road and the Rancho Murieta Country Club Ballroom. Facemasks, social distancing and other COVID-19 protection practices will be enforced for the two in-person meetings. More than half of the workshop time is set-aside for participants to ask questions, provide feedback and suggest alternatives to the projects and actions under consideration. Staff members who are knowledgeable about the plan proposal will be available at both in-person sites to answer questions.

To participate in the public workshop, go to cosumnes.waterforum.org to register for notification about the Zoom meeting. Those who want to attend the in-person sessions are also asked to register to help staff with logistical planning.
