The Ukiah Valley Basin Groundwater Sustainability Agency (UVBGSA) was created by a Joint Powers Agreement to serve as the official Groundwater Sustainability Agency for the Ukiah Valley Basin required by the Sustainable Groundwater Management (SGMA) Act of 2014.

SGMA seeks to provide sustainable management of groundwater basins, enhance local management of groundwater, establish minimum standards for sustainable groundwater management, and provide local groundwater agencies with the authority and the technical and financial assistance necessary to sustainably manage groundwater.

The purpose of this Agency is to take actions deemed necessary to ensure sustainable management of the Basin, as required by SGMA. The Agency is charged with developing a Groundwater Sustainability Plan (GSP) for the Ukiah Basin.
