The Basin Boundary Modification Emergency Regulations became effective November 16, 2015, which allowed for Initial Notification of boundary modifications to occur prior to, and during, the first submission period, which extends from January 1 to March 31, 2016. The criteria for eligibility and the information required to support the modification request are described in the regulation.
Local agencies, as defined in SGMA, can voluntarily submit a request to modify the boundaries of a basin, as they are defined in Bulletin 118, using this online submission system. The local agency submitting the request must establish a secure User ID and Password in order to access the system and submit a modification request. An Initial Notification must precede each boundary modification request. The functionality of the online system allows the requesting agency to save the information and return at a later time to complete the request package.
Each submission package will be required to follow these submission steps, which correlate to the submission status:
- DRAFT: An on-going process preparing the submission - the information is not complete and is considered a work-in-progress for the requesting agency.
- SUBMITTED: Signifies the submission is believed to be complete and the requesting agency is officially submitting the package to DWR for a completeness review.
- COMPLETE: DWR has reviewed the submission package for substantial compliance with the requirements and the 30-day Public Input Period begins. Public input must be made in compliance with the requirements of §343.12 of the regulation and submitted to the Basin Boundary Modification System as a "Comment" to the "Complete" modification request submission.
Disclaimer: All submitted information will be public accessible through DWR web site.
