UPDATE: IMPLEMENTATION OF LAS POSAS VALLEY GROUNDWATER ADJUDICATION TO RESUME [9/18/2023]
On September 13, 2023, the Santa Barbara Superior Court determined that the appeals recently filed and challenging the judgment in Las Posas Valley Water Rights Coalition, et al. v. Fox Canyon Groundwater Management Agency, Santa Barbara Sup. Ct. Case No. VENC100509700 (LPV Judgment), did not stay implementation of the LPV Judgment. Accordingly, Fox Canyon Groundwater Management Agency, acting as the Las Posas Valley Watermaster, will resume implementing the LPV Judgment, including confirming and resolving issues with water right holders’ WMID information, completing landowner constituency group designations, and scheduling initial organizational group meetings for the election of policy advisory committee members.
Notice of LPV Judgment implementation work, deadlines, and meetings will be provided to water right holders and stakeholders on the Watermaster’s service list. Water right holder and stakeholder contact information may be updated by emailing the Watermaster.
