The SASb is located in Sacramento County between the American and Cosumnes Rivers.
Why Groundwater Sustainability Matters?

Participate in the process to understand what needs to be done to protect the quality and availability of this valuable resource.

We encourage members and participants to join the meeting 10 minutes early. Note that we will use Zoom to share slides and other information during the meeting. Use the link above to join. If you have a microphone that you can use with your computer, it should be possible to both listen to and participate in, the meeting through Zoom. If you do not have a microphone or a headset with a microphone that plugs into your computer via USB port, you will need to call into the conference line to listen and comment, although you still should be able to view the meeting materials on Zoom. Please do not simultaneously use a microphone through Zoom and the telephone conference line. That combination results in audio problems for all participants.
