About Us


Thank you for your interest in becoming a member of the California Groundwater Coalition (CGC). When CGC was created six years ago, there were very few members of the Legislature who knew much about groundwater. As of today, that has all changed – groundwater is a consistent subject of discussion in the Capitol. Unfortunately, that is both the good news and the bad news. Because groundwater involves many technical and legal issues that are highly complex, there are many misconceptions. Chief among them is the idea that all of the state’s groundwater resources are being mismanaged. One of the biggest battles we have to fight in Sacramento is rectifying this misinformation about groundwater. The Coalition’s mission is to represent groundwater interests at the State Capitol and make sure policy makers have correct information relating to groundwater. You and your agency can help.
