New water agency on horizon for Scotts Valley, San Lorenzo Valley

Published Saturday March 4

SCOTTS VALLEY >> Discussions are underway to form a groundwater management agency that will affect house owners in San Lorenzo Valley and Scotts Valley.

John Ricker, director of Santa Cruz County Water Resources Division, hosted a meeting last week for stakeholders of the Santa Margarita aquifer, attracting a standing-room-only crowd of 60-plus people to the Scotts Valley Water District meeting room.

“If we don’t do it, the state will come in and do it to us,” stated Ricker, explaining that the brand new agency must be formed by June 30. “We may have until 2022 to develop a plan.”

County supervisor Bruce McPherson asked about solutions.
