The Cadiz Project, which will serve the water needs of 100,000 Southern California families and generate 5,900 jobs, has been fully reviewed and approved under the California Environmental Quality Act, the most stringent environmental law in America. The Project includes strong monitoring and enforcement to ensure that it is safe and sustainable and offers many local benefits, including significant investment in the local economy and certainty that water will be available for Southern California.

New report shows that purity of Cadiz water to save Southern California water users $395 million over life of the Cadiz Water Project

 LOS ANGELES, CA – Today Cadiz Inc. [NASDAQ:CDZI] (“Cadiz”, the “Company”) released a new report prepared by engineering consulting firm CH2M HILL detailing almost $8 million in annual cost savings to Southern California water users that can be realized through the introduction of high-quality Cadiz Valley Water Conservation, Recovery, and Supply Project (“Project”) water supplies into the region’s water transportation system.  By applying an existing salinity assessment model developed by the U.S.    Bureau of Reclamation (USBR) and the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California (Metropolitan), the analysis shows that introducing Cadiz water into the Colorado River Aqueduct (CRA), which is one of the main sources of water supply for Southern California, will realize nearly $400 million in savings to regional ratepayers over the 50-year life of the Project ($203 million in today’s dollars).  This same model was recently used to evaluate water quality benefits associated with the twin tunnel solution now being pursued through the Bay-Delta Conservation Plan process.

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.
