In 1956 the Clay Water District was formed to contract with the United State Bureau of Reclamation to deliver agricultural water from the Folsom South Canal. While the District is no longer receiving water from the US Bureau of Reclamation, the District is still an active voice in regional water management. The Clay Water district is one of seven Groundwater Sustainability Agencies (GSAs) working together to develop and implement a state mandated plan for managing groundwater in the Cosumnes Groundwater Subbasin. The plan must be submitted to the state by January 31, 2022. State funds have been provided to help prepare the plan. However, local property owners are responsible for providing the funds needed to administer the plan. More information about the groundwater work in the Cosumnes Subbasin can be found on the Cosumnes Subbasin SGMA Working Group website.
