Cook: Orange County Water District Should Distance Itself from the … – VoiceofOC

I am opposed to the Orange County Water District entering into a non-binding water purchase agreement with Cadiz Inc. as it is yet another water scheme that is both economically and environmentally flawed. Even though the amount of water being proposed for purchase by OCWD is trivial, less than 1% of its demand, it would consume far more than 1% of staff time, and divert attention away from worthy projects like the Groundwater Replenishment System expansion.

If you are not familiar with Cadiz, it is no surprise. Only water wonks and desert rats have been paying attention. Cadiz is the bad idea of its originator, Keith Brackpool who, according to Michael Hiltzik of the Los Angeles Times, “ came to the U.S. after pleading guilty to criminal charges relating to securities trading in Britain.” Brackpool’s idea is to mine fossil water from a 34,000 acre tract of land the company owns in the Mojave Desert, and then pipe it to Orange County.

To reach this objective, the company has to achieve a number of feats, not the least of which is to, (1) avoid preparing an EIS (Environmental Impact Statement) and, (2) gain access to the Colorado River Aqueduct which is owned and operated by the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California. If Cadiz can avoid an EIS, they can then avoid the scrutiny of USGS hydrologists who take issue with the Cadiz’ natural recharge rates which have been suggested by independent hydrologists to be up to 16 times higher than reality.

Cadiz make Chapecoense invitation – Football Espana

Cadiz will invite Brazilian club Chapecoense to the 2017 Trofeo Ramon de Carranza with all proceeds to go to the families of the plane victims.

The annual friendly tournament is staged by the Andalucian club in memory of it’s former president and is among the most prestigious friendly tournaments in Spain with top clubs from the country, Italy, Portugal and Brazil regularly making appearances.

Los Gaditanos have announced in an official statement they want to show solidarity with the Brazilian side, who were involved in Tuesday’s tragic plane crash in Colombia ahead of their Sudamericana final against Atletico Nacional.

They confirmed that the Brazilians would have all expenses paid for them and all ticket sales and fundraising initiatives will be directed towards them, following on from an agreement between club president Manuel Vizcaino and the city’s mayor.

Vizcaino later appeared in Cadena Cope to confirm they had written to the Brazilians to express their condolensces and also they would be inviting them to next year’s tournament.

Stock sale nets Cadiz Inc. $9 million to move forward with controversial groundwater plan – San Bernardino County Sun




LOS ANGELES >> Cadiz Inc. has raised more than $9 million in a public stock offering held Thursday, said Andy Moore, president of B. Riley & Co., of Los Angeles, which underwrote the offering on the NASDAQ Global Market.

Some of the money will be used to advance the company’s environmentally controversial project to transfer groundwater in a remote part of San Bernardino County’s Mojave Desert to parts of south Orange County and other locations.

The net proceeds from the sale can also be used funding business development activities, capital expenditures, working capital and general and administrative expenses, said the prospectus filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on Thursday.


Los Angeles-based Cadiz will receive the proceeds on Dec. 7, Moore said.

In the prospectus, Cadiz said it’s a “land and water resource development company” with 45,000 acres in three areas of eastern San Bernardino County.

“Virtually all of this land is underlain with high-quality, naturally recharging groundwater resources,” the prospectus states.

Cadiz is proposing to pump 50,000 to 75,000 acre-feet of groundwater a year from the Fenner Valley, about 40 miles northeast of Twentynine Palms and south of the Mojave National Preserve. The water would then be sold to other water agencies for municipal and industrial use.


The project would also benefit water agencies in San Bernardino, Riverside and Los Angeles counties, Cadiz officials said.

The project has withstood several court challenges.

But it faces a major hurdle from a U.S. Bureau of Land Management decision rejecting Cadiz’s proposed use of an 1875 railway right of way to build a critical 43-mile pipeline from the Fenner Valley — about 10 miles southeast of Baker, to the Colorado River Aqueduct, where it could be delivered to future customers.

“We are very optimistic about our ability to secure our rights to convey water along the Arizona and California Railroad right-of-way in 2017 and ready the water project for prompt construction,” Scott Slater, Cadiz CEO & President, said in a statement.


“The new working capital received as a result of the public offering coupled with our recent debt extension will enable us to turn our complete attention to finalizing the project,” he said.

Cadiz also extended its senior debt maturity from September 2017 until September 2019 in a separate transaction on same day as offering.

“The Cadiz project has always been a mirage, highly speculative from an economics and water perspective,” said Seth Shteir, California Desert Program Manager for the National Parks Conservation Association. “The project will fuel unstainable growth and harm groundwater resources.”



Cadiz officials say their project will take the same amount of water that would have evaporated from the area were the project not in place.

“The stock market goes up and down. But a bad idea is a bad idea,” Shteir said.


Expatica home News Three rescued as severe flooding hits Cadiz region after torrential rainfall – Expatica Spain

1st December 2016, Comments 0 comments

Over 100 emergency calls swamp rescuers as familes flee.

A CADIZ region has been declared a ‘catastrophe zone’ after two days of heavy rain.

Hundreds of residents around Vejer de la Frontera had experienced ‘moments of genuine panic’ following the weekend rain according to local mayor Jose Ortiz with over 100 calls to emergency services.

Roads were submerged as water levels rose to a metre and a half high with Vejer, Conil and part of Chiclana hardest hit.

Emergency services rescued three people, including a child, from a building near Zahar.

Frightened residents were forced into upper floor rooms to escape the flooding as homes suffered serious damage.

“We have used the hotel in the town to accommodate those affected,” said Ortiz.

“Their are families that have lost everything.”
