BRIDGEPORT — A dump truck overturned on Cadiz Pike Road on Monday morning, closing the roadway in both directions.

The dump truck was resting on its side in the middle of the roadway as firefighters from the Sunset Heights and Colerain volunteer fire departments responded to the accident. Officers from the Ohio State Highway Patrol also responded to block off the road and take a statement from the driver.

The driver of the vehicle was not injured, despite the truck being knocked onto its side during the accident. The crash occurred on a sharp downhill turn on the road, blocking the road in both directions.

Firefighters from the Sunset Heights and Colerain volunteer fire departments said it was not yet known Monday morning if the crash was due to driver error or mechanical failure. They also reported that no one was injured in the accident, and they were awaiting cleanup crews to remove the truck and restore normal traffic flow.

Cadiz lands 1000 MW gas-fired power plant « Harrison News Herald – Harrison News Herald

The Harrison County Community Improvement Corporation (CIC) announced that they have been working on behalf of Harrison County citizens, and in cooperation with the Village of Cadiz Administration to bring EmberClear Corporation of Houston, Texas, to Harrison County to construct a 1000 MW natural gas-fired electric power generation facility. The facility will be built on approximately 60 acres in the Harrison County Industrial Park. The CIC and EmberClear say they are committed to working closely together on all matters relating to the obtaining of federal, state and local regulatory permits along with local infrastructure and other matters necessary for the construction and operation of the plant.

According to a press release put out by the CIC, the abundant natural gas production facilities in close proximity to the project site make this facility uniquely positioned to produce low-cost power. There are several natural gas pipelines operated by Dominion East, Spectra, Energy Transfer and Columbia within a few miles of the project site. In addition, several fractionation and gas distillation facilities within Harrison County have plans to expand production. The Harrison project is entertaining multiple proposals to source natural gas from the producers in the area.

Nick Homrighausen, CIC Executive Director of Community & Economic Development said, “We have been working with EmberClear to move this project forward. We were in competition with other counties for this project and through the collaborative efforts of my office and the county commissioners we were able to land this viable project in Harrison County.”

Homrighausen also said that this proves Harrison County’s ability to compete for large investments and win. He went on to stress that there is a long road ahead for the completion of this project and with the teamwork of the commissioner’s office, CIC and the Village of Cadiz, but he believes that this project will be seen through to completion and bring high paying jobs and long term investment to the county.

EmberClear CEO Raj Suri said “The proposed generating facility will provide enough electricity to power 1 million homes and bring capital investment of over $900 million to Harrison County.”

“I think it’ll be good for the area, the school systems, and good for jobs. It’s a huge windfall for the county,” said Cadiz Mayor, Ken Zitko.

CIC President Dale Arbaugh said “The plant will bring 500 construction jobs for three years and about 30 skilled permanent jobs to Harrison County. In addition, the plant will utilize local natural gas and support significant job growth in the region.”

Cadiz Water Project Receives Support of the California Chamber of … – Nasdaq





LOS ANGELES, Sept. 21, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Cadiz Inc. (NASDAQ:CDZI) (“Cadiz”, the “Company”) is pleased to announce that the Cadiz Water Conservation, Recovery & Storage Project (“Cadiz Water Project”) has earned the support of the California Chamber of Commerce (“CalChamber”), the state’s largest business advocacy group. The Cadiz Water Project is a public-private partnership with local water providers to deliver a new, reliable water supply across Southern California.

In a recent letter of support the CalChamber stated, “The Cadiz Project fits within the policy principals of the CalChamber to support a comprehensive solution to California’s chronic water shortage. The increase in water supplies and the economic benefits are compelling.  Southern California needs projects like this one to diversify its long term water supply while at the same time reducing reliance on imported water and providing for more local groundwater storage.”

“The express support of the Cadiz Project by the CalChamber, as well as the strong embrace of our economic benefits and ability to grow water supplies in the middle of an extended drought, provides powerful momentum to our effort to complete our remaining milestones,” said Scott Slater
, Cadiz President and CEO. “The backing of California’s largest and most powerful broad-based business advocate to government is a golden affirmation of our mission to deliver reliable water to 400,000 people and we are grateful for the support.”

The Cadiz Water Project is designed to conserve groundwater presently lost to evaporation and high-salinity in the Mojave Desert’s Cadiz Valley and deliver it to Southern California communities. Over the 50-year term of the Project, an average of 50,000 acre-feet of water per year, enough for 400,000 people, will be delivered across the region in compliance with a comprehensive, state-of-the-art groundwater management program that will be enforced by San Bernardino County. In a second phase, the Project would store up to 1 million acre-feet of imported water for use in future dry years. The Company developed the Cadiz Water Project in partnership with the Santa Margarita Water District (“SMWD”), Orange County’s second largest water agency, as well as water providers that serve seven Southern California counties.

The Project was exhaustively reviewed and then approved in 2012 in accordance with the California Environmental Quality Act (“CEQA”). Earlier this summer, the CEQA approvals were sustained by the California Court of Appeal in six sweeping opinions in favor of the Project.  With legal review of the Project under CEQA exhausted, the Company and its supporters are working to finalize arrangements to convey water from Cadiz via a pipeline to the Colorado River Aqueduct and then into the service areas of Project participants.

Agencies discuss solar eclipse, plan to handle crowds – Cadiz Record

News

Wednesday, September 21, 2016 – Updated: 8:52 AM
BY MARY GARRISON mgarrison@cadizrecord.com

Local agencies are looking into the potential for capitalizing on next year’s total solar eclipse.

The event, which will take place Aug. 21, will span the length of the U.S., from South Carolina to Oregon. And Trigg County lies directly in the path, with Cerulean as the point of greatest totality, which will begin about 1:24 p.m. and span nearly three minutes of total darkness.

It’s an event expected to draw visitors from around the globe to the region. Cadiz-Trigg County Tourist and Convention Commission is among those looking to facilitate the best visitor experience and potentially draw additional revenues. Jan Culwell, Tourism liaison on the regional eclipse planning committee, said the community should be prepared to handle crowds in excess of the Trigg County Ham Festival, over the course of about a week.

“NASA says about 1 million people will be between Cape Girardeau and Hopkinsville,” Culwell said. “That is 7,692 people a mile. And if it’s tree cover â ¦ you can’t see the sun. They’re going to be looking for empty fields. If you have pastures, that would be great.”

Culwell said tourism would function as a clearing house, taking a list of residents with ideal accommodations for eclipse viewers to pass on to those who inquire. Culwell said visitors began inquiring about accommodations as early as 2008, and it could provide an opportunity for the area to reap revenues.

“They’re going to be looking for things to do,” she said. “â ¦ We’ll need to have indoor activities for them. Aug. 21 is going to be hot — movies indoors, lectures indoors â ¦ businesses are going to have people coming in and just hanging around, using the restrooms.”

There were safety issues to consider as well, Culwell said. While many would be aware of the events of the day, others would not, and traffic along the interstate could become an issue.

“It’s going to get dark,” she said. “The birds will stop singing. The stars will come out, you’ll hear crickets. â ¦ There’s going to be people stopped on I-24 thinking it’s going to be a good place to watch it, and they’re going to get hit.”

Tourism Executive Director Bill Stevens said local businesses — including grocery stores and farms — should be aware of the potential crowd as well.

“We’re wanting to communicate enough where people consider whether or not they’re going to plant their fields with crops or they’re going to let people come and stay and use their land as an observation area,” Stevens said. ” â ¦ There’s lots of merchandising opportunities for businesses in and around the county.”

Stevens said the commission would connect with the city and county to partner on efforts, as well, such as the “Lights Out Festival,” to plan activities for the week of the event. The tourism office has already purchased glasses that will allow people to view the eclipse.

More plans are in development.
