[NASDAQ: CDZI] announced that two Southern California water agencies have approved agreements to proceed with the Cadiz Water Conservation & Storage Project (“Cadiz Project”) and participate in the Project’s environmental review. The Boards of Directors of Santa Margarita Water District (“Santa Margarita”) and Three Valleys Municipal Water District (“Three Valleys”), which together serve over 650,000 customers in parts of Orange and Los Angeles Counties, have unanimously approved agreements that commit funds to an environmental review of the Cadiz Project and also grant the agencies the right to acquire a firm annual supply of water once the environmental review is complete.

Panel will review scientific basis for design and advise participants on the proposed Project's operating and monitoring plans

RANCHO SANTA MARGARITA, CA and LOS ANGELES, CA (May 2, 2010) – Today Santa Margarita Water District (“SMWD”) and Cadiz Inc. [NASDAQ: CDZI] (“Cadiz”) announced the formation of a 13-member Groundwater Stewardship Committee (“GSC”) comprised of leading experts who will guide the design of an operating plan and mitigation and monitoring program for the Cadiz Valley Water Conservation, Recovery and Storage Project (“the Project”).  SMWD is serving as the lead agency of the California Environmental Quality Act (“CEQA”) review for the Project, which proposes to provide a new, reliable water supply for SMWD and other Southern California communities by capturing and conserving thousands of acre-feet of native groundwater currently being lost to evaporation from an aquifer system located beneath Cadiz’s property in California’s Mojave Desert.  The operating plan and monitoring program will ensure that the Project is both sustainable and not harmful to the desert and watershed environment.

February 8, 2010 ONTARIO, CA – Today the internationally respected environmental firm CH2M Hill will unveil the findings of a comprehensive year-long study measuring the vast scale and recharge rate of the Cadiz aquifer system. The study, to be presented at a conference of the Association of Ground Water Agencies and American Ground Water Trust, describes a groundwater basin consisting principally of an alluvial and carbonate aquifer ranging in size between 17 and 34 million acre-feet, a volume of water larger than Lake Mead, the nation’s largest surface reservoir.
