The 60-day public-review period for the Ojai Basin Groundwater Management Agency's (OBGMA) alternative plan began Dec. 27.
The document, along with nearly 200 pages of supporting data, was submitted to the California Department of Water Resources (DWR) ahead of the Jan. 1 deadline, according to OBGMA Director Russ Baggerly. 
“It's in and available for public comment,” Baggerly said Jan. 3. All feedback on the document would be relayed to the OBGMA's project manager, water consultant John Mundy.
“It's unfortunate the law refers to it as a 'plan',” Baggerly said. “It's actually an extensive compilation of scientific data to demonstrate the good condition of the basin.”
