efficient administration

Because every market is different, operating a groundwater exchange involves a wide range of potential administrative tasks. 

Important processes include enrolling participants, facilitating matches between buyers and sellers, executing financial transactions and reporting transfers to the regulatory authority. In every case, effective administration involves educating users about how to participate in the market, communicating market activity clearly,  monitoring progress, and evaluating carefully to ensure the market functions as intended.

EMS has spent the past seven years in the trenches, working with stakeholders, designing markets and administering the first groundwater market to be implemented in California under the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act (SGMA). Over those seven years, we have honed the administrative processes crucial to smooth and successful market operation.
