The Yolo Subbasin Groundwater Agency was officially formed on June 19, 2017 for the purpose of acting as the Groundwater Sustainability Agency (GSA) for the Yolo Subbasin.  The Department of Water Resources posted the Yolo Subbasin GSA notice on June 26, 2017, and the Yolo Subbasin Groundwater Agency will be considered the exclusive GSA for the Yolo Subbasin on September 24, 2017.
