Emily and Tricia walk through the pertinent provisions of the Governor's recent drought Executive Order (EO) affecting agriculture in this podcast

They cover new permit requirements in the groundwater section and the steps required under the EO to develop new wells or alter existing groundwater wells in areas subject to the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act (SGMA) and located in medium or high priority basins in California.  The team also covers legislation moving through the State Capitol that could impact the ability to get new wells in SGMA territories.
