The Indian Wells Valley Groundwater Authority’s Technical Advisory and Policy Advisory committees met Thursday. Details were unavailable at press time, but both committees will give reports to the IWVGA board during its regular meeting on Thursday, Feb. 15.

The TAC was scheduled to further discuss developing a groundwater database management system. The database has been a topic of discussion among multiple agencies as several such comprehensive databases exist, but the IWVGA is now paying Stetson Engineering to develop a new system.

The PAC met later in the evening to review a draft Plan of Action and Milestones schedule. The IWVGA’s regular board meeting will be at 10 p.m. Feb. 15 at City Hall. Meetings are held each third Thursday of the month. For agendas and more info visit www.kerncounty.com/WaterResources.aspx.
