AGSA Eligibility Determination

  1. Together, Wheeler Ridge-Maricopa Water Storage District (WRMWSD), Arvin-Edison Water Storage District (AEWSD), Tejon-Castac Water District (TCWD), and Kern County comprise the White Wolf GSA. All four parties are public agencies. Three water suppliers districts - WRMWSD, AEWSD, and TCWD - serve customers in the White Wolf Subbasin and are therefore eligible to form Groundwater Sustainability Agencies (GSAs) by right of their water supply responsibilities (Water Code Section 10721). The service area boundaries of these district Parties comprising the White Wolf GSA are presented on Figure A.1. Within the Subbasin, WRMWSD serves approximately 57,600 acres and AEWSD serves approximately 23,400 acres. AEWSD and WRMWSD manage approximately 14,700 acres of overlapping service areas in the northern portion of the Subbasin (i.e., the "checkerboard" area shown on Figure A.1); groundwater management is coordinated between the two agencies in this area. TCWD manages nearly 20,800 acres in the Subbasin, of which approximately 14,900 acres overlap WRMWD's service area and are cooperatively managed. The County has land use authority covering the entirety of Kern County. The Subbasin is wholly contained within Kern County, and therefore the County is eligible to be a GSA for all lands within the Subbasin. The White Wolf GSA will manage the approximately 35,400 acres within the Subbasin that do not fall within any of the three district Parties' service areas. There are no other entities within the Subbasin that manage groundwater. Together, the service areas of WRMWSD, AEWSD, TCWD, and Kern County cover the entirety of the White Wolf Subbasin.
