Wicks San Bernardino Sun http://www.sbsun.com/opinions/ci_23807372/why-federal-review-makes-no-sense-cadiz-project August 7, 2013 - Despite last year's approval of the Cadiz Valley Water Project under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) -- long considered the nation's toughest environmental law -- a handful of project opponents are now pushing for an expensive and time-consuming federal "do over."

By Scott Slater Published in the San Bernardino Sun October 8, 2012 From the time before statehood, water has been recognized as the lifeblood of California's economy. A little more than 80 years ago, the people of this state adopted a constitutional amendment mandating the optimization of efficient water use in California. Since that time, water has remained a critical resource and Article 10, Section 2 of the California Constitution has served to provide the legal and policy underpinnings for responsible water use.
