The California Groundwater Coalition was established based upon the success of a 2007 joint initiative of Groundwater Resources Association of California, Association of Groundwater Agencies, and American Ground Water Trust.   Coalition members include public and private water suppliers who rely upon groundwater to help meet the water supply needs of millions of California residents and sustain our economy. The Coalition was formed at the urging of California state and local elected officials who believe that increased efforts are needed to educate and inform policy makers and the public about California’s groundwater resources and the role groundwater plays in providing a safe and reliable water supply for California. The Coalition is an independent 501(c)(6) organization.
