Advisory Committee

The Petaluma Valley Groundwater Sustainability Agency (GSA) Advisory Committee typically meets at 5:30 p.m. on the second Wednesday of every other month at the Petaluma Community Center, 320 N. McDowell Blvd., Petaluma. The meeting location is subject to change, but is always within the Petaluma Valley basin.

For information on past and future meetings, view the Meeting Calendar.

The advisory committee is comprised of community members with diverse perspectives on beneficial groundwater use, including representatives from agriculture, the environmental community, the business community and rural residential well users. The committee’s purpose is to provide input and recommendations to the Board of Directors on groundwater sustainability plan development, implementation and policies.

Terms will be two-years (after initial staggered terms), and interested individuals can apply to participate by contacting the  GSA administrator. For more information on current Advisory Committee members, click here.
