Cadiz Lines Up Technology Company to Ensure Delivery of Fresh Water to Southern California


The Cadiz Project will bring water from the Fenner Valley to Santa Margarita Water District.Los Angeles-based land and water resources company Cadiz Inc. on Monday announced it has lined up a technology company to help it remove the cancer-causing chemical Chromium-6 from its groundwater in the San Bernardino County desert.

Cadiz and the Santa Margarita Water District i have a plan to build a 43-mile pipeline that would divert surplus groundwater from the Fenner Valley, about 40 miles northeast of Twentynine Palms, to the Colorado River Aqueduct. The proposed project has withstood numerous court challenges and is awaiting federal Bureau of Land Management approval, finalization of contracts with water companies and water transportation approvals from the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California.

Cadiz expects to clear all these hurdles this year, said Courtney Degener, a Cadiz spokesman.
