Cadiz Inc. (“Cadiz”, the “Company”) has pledged a gift to Duke University’s Nicholas Institute for Environmental Policy Solutions (“Nicholas Institute”), a nationally recognized public policy think tank, as part of the Company’s commitments to ensure legacy benefits from the use of its property in California’s eastern Mojave Desert. Based upon a financial pledge by Cadiz and upon commencement of Phase I of the Cadiz project, the Nicholas Institute will undertake new and expanded work on holistic land and water management strategies to facilitate long-term protection for species of special importance in water-stressed areas, including the Southwestern United States.

San Bernardino Sun, Joe Nelson www.sbsun.com/environment-and-nature/20140502/controversial-pipeline-project-surges-forward Orange County Superior Court Judge Gail Andler’s ruling Thursday dismissed each of six complaints filed against the Cadiz Valley Water Conservation, Recovery and Storage Project, according to a news release and attached court order. The project would divert surplus groundwater from the Fenner Valley, about 40 miles northeast of Twentynine Palms and south of the Mojave National Preserve, to the Colorado River Aqueduct. The groundwater would then be sold to other water agencies for municipal and industrial use. The plan proposes pumping 50,000 to 75,000 acre-feet of groundwater a year from the aquifer during the project’s 50-year projected lifespan.

Today, a long-awaited draft maximum contaminant level (MCL) for Chromium-6 was proposed by the California Department of Public Health at 10 (ten) parts per billion (ppb). Chromium-6 is a groundwater constituent found in over 30% of groundwater basins in California, including Riverside County’s Coachella Valley and various basins in Los Angeles, San Bernardino, Solano, Santa Barbara, San Mateo, Santa Cruz and Yolo Counties. For example, affected cities include Glendale, Burbank, North Hollywood, Pomona, Monterey, Chino, Joshua Basin, Phelan, Twentynine Palms, Solano, Daly City, Santa Ynez, Soquel Creek, Davis, Woodland, and parts of San Francisco.   It also naturally occurs in the Cadiz Valley aquifer system at levels consistent with the proposed MCL.

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.
