SUBJECT: Resolution of Support for Request to Revise the Santa Margarita
Groundwater Basin Boundaries
February 4, 2016
It is recommended that the Board of Directors review this memo, review the
attached Santa Margarita Groundwater Basin Boundary Revision
Request and County Staff Report, and by Resolution 28(15-16) declare
support for the boundary revision request.
At its regularly scheduled meeting of October 15, 2015 the Board authorized a
cooperative effort between the District, Scotts Valley Water District and the County
of Santa Cruz to prepare a Santa Margarita Groundwater Basin boundary adjustment
request for submittal to the State. The agreed cooperative effort included hiring
Hydrometrics as consultant to prepare said request. It was agreed that Scotts Valley
Water District would be the lead agency for this project.
Hydrometrics has prepared the attached boundary revision request. At this time
Scotts Valley Water District is prepared to submit the request on behalf of the three
cooperative agencies. Hydrometrics encourages that a Resolution of Support from
each cooperative agency be submitted with the request.
The attached request is being submitted to the State in conjunction with a similar
request from the Mid-County Groundwater Basin group, also prepared by
Hydrometrics. The basins share a common geographic boundary. Submitting the two
requests concurrently should assist the State in their review of each request.

RESOLUTION NO. 30 (15-16)
SUBJECT: RESOLUTION SUPPORTING A BASIN BOUNDARY MODIFICATION
REQUEST FOR THE SANTA MARGARITA GROUNDWATER BASIN
WHEREAS, groundwater located in the Santa Margarita Groundwater Basin
(SMGB) in the vicinity of Scotts Valley, Mount Hermon, Felton, Ben Lomond, Lompico
and Boulder Creek in Santa Cruz County is a vital resource to meet the water supply
needs for residents, visitors and businesses of Santa Cruz County; and
WHEREAS, the United States Environmental Protection Agency designated the
SMGB as a sole source aquifer in 1985; and
WHEREAS, the Scotts Valley Water District, San Lorenzo Valley Water District,
Lompico County Water District, City of Scotts Valley and the County of Santa Cruz
(“Partner Agencies”) have come together to improve management of groundwater in the
SMGB under a Memorandum of Understanding dated June 30, 1995, forming the Santa
Margarita Groundwater Basin Management Committee (SMGBMC); and
WHEREAS, each of the Partner Agencies is a local agency as defined by the
Sustainable Groundwater Management Act of 2014 (SGMA). Duly organized and
existing under and by virtue of the laws of the State of California with the ability to
exercise powers related to groundwater management; and
WHEREAS, SGMA requires formation of a local Groundwater Sustainability
Agency (GSA) by June 30, 2017 and adoption of a groundwater sustainability plan
(GSP) by January 31, 2022, for all medium- and high-priority basins not identified as
being subject to critical conditions of overdraft; and
WHEREAS, current groundwater management of the SMGB includes all or part
of three basins identified in Department of Water Resources’ (DWR) Bulletin Number
118, including the following basins (designated by the name of the basin and number
assigned to it in the DWR-Bulletin No. 118): Scotts Valley (3-27), Santa Cruz Purisima

Bulletin No. 118; and
WHEREAS, SGMA states that a basin’s boundaries shall be defined as identified
in the California DWR Bulletin No. 118; and

WHEREAS, SGMA establishes a process for local agencies to request that DWR
revise the boundaries of a basin, including establishment of a new sub-basin; and
