A Groundwater Sustainability Agency grounded in science and a technical process is only half the picture. Needs and perceptions of society are also important because they also influence successful management. 

Consider societal perceptions and needs.  This will add built-in flexibility and transparency in how you operate your Groundwater Sustainability Agency. Built-in flexibility means a social process that supports adaptation and the goals of the Groundwater Sustainability Agency. Sounds like a recipe for success!
