The City of Tulare, City of Visalia and the Tulare Irrigation District have entered into a Joint Powers Authority (JPA) Agreement to form the Mid-Kaweah Groundwater Sustainability Agency (GSA). Execution of the JPA in 2015 created a six-member Board of Directors comprised of elected officials of the founding agencies. The Board of Directors is responsible for the development, adoption and implementation of a Groundwater Sustainability Plan as required by the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act of 2014.
Current City of Tulare representatives on the Mid-Kaweah GSA are Council Member (Vice Mayor) Dennis A. Mederos and Board of Public Utilities Member Howard Stroman.
The Board meets on the second Tuesday every other month at 3 p.m., subject to cancellation or additional meetings as necessary. Meetings are held at the Tulare Public Library & Council Chambers, 491 North "M" Street, Tulare, California 93274.
