Groundwater use capped for some Tulare County farmers
Tulare County farmers used to pumping groundwater at will are coming to the harsh reality that those days are numbered.
For some, they’re already over.
Pumping caps have been, or soon will be, implemented in all three groundwater sustainability agencies in the Kaweah subbasin,.
“I’d say the reaction has been positive. Positively terrible,” said Mike Hagman, director of the East Kaweah Groundwater Sustainability Agency. “Overall, it’s been ‘Man, oh mighty, this is going to be a killer.'”
