Sustainable Groundwater Management

Serving stewards of western water since 1993.

Since its founding, Davids Engineering has become a leader in characterizing the relationship between land use, water use, and surface water processes. Understanding this relationship is at the core of understanding the impacts of all water users on the groundwater system, and in understanding how best to approach sustainable groundwater management.

Groundwater management efforts have long been a priority for the many water users and agencies that DE serves. The passage of the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act (SGMA) in 2014 has further heightened this focus statewide, as agencies must work toward achieving long-term groundwater sustainability.

Davids Engineering’s expert insights into the surface water system, together with our extensive project experience across California, have uniquely positioned the firm to respond to the many demands of sustainable groundwater management that are faced by water users and agencies in their response to SGMA.

We are dedicated to the idea that sustainability is best achieved through the dual goals of enhancing the productivity and profitability of the agricultural enterprise and improving environmental stewardship, including sustainable groundwater management.

We have supported, and continue to support, our clients in their sustainable groundwater management efforts in a number of ways:
