County regulators unanimously approved a sustainability plan for the San Pasqual Valley Groundwater Basin.

The plan will ensure that the county is responsible for 10% of the costs of basin management within its jurisdiction.

The basin is located 25 miles northeast of downtown San Diego and is home to dairies, orchards, and nurseries.

Three creeks – Guejito, Santa Maria and Santa Ysabel – empty into the basin and converge to form the San Dieguito River which flows into the southwest Hodges Reservoir.

In addition to agriculture, the valley is known for its natural beauty, recreational use, and attractions such as the San Diego Zoo Safari Park.
