99-year lease agreement will provide Southern California with as much as 150,000 acre-feet/year of clean and reliable water

September 18, 2008 LOS ANGELES – Cadiz Inc. (NASDAQ:CDZI) announced today the execution of a 99-year lease agreement with the Arizona & California Railroad Company (ARZC).  The agreement will allow Cadiz to utilize a portion of the railroad’s right-of-way for a conveyance pipeline as part of the Cadiz Valley Dry-Year Supply Project. The Cadiz Valley Dry-Year Supply Project (Project) is a water storage and supply program, which will provide Southern California with as much as 150,000 acre-feet/year (49 billion gallons) of clean and reliable water during years of droughts, emergencies, or other periods of urgent need by utilizing the aquifer system that underlies Cadiz’s 35,000-acre landholding in the Cadiz and Fenner valleys of eastern San Bernardino County.  Historically, such dry periods occur in approximately three out of every ten years. In any given dry year, this water would be enough to serve more than 1.2 million people.
