Duncan Hunter: Cadiz Water Project “A Measure Of Relief”

San Diego Member of Congress Duncan Hunter has joined the growing list of Congressional supporters of the Cadiz Water Project, adding his support letter to recent letters received from Orange County Congressional representatives Mimi Walters and Dana Rohrbacher and House Agricultural Committee members Jim Costa and Collin Peterson.

In his letter, Hunter called on the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California’s Board of Directors to review the Cadiz Water Project “in a most timely manner, and take advantage of this opportunity so crucial to our quality of life.”

The opinion of Hunter, who represents much of eastern San Diego County in Congress, is particularly important since he serves on the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee and therefore is a strong voice in support of improvements to the state’s water infrastructure. In his letter to MWD Board Chair Randy Record, Hunter also wrote,

“I … believe [Cadiz] holds potential to help provide a measure of relief from the cycles of drought occurring in our area. …

“As you know, it is rare when a new, reliable water supply is discovered, and given the serious responsibilities we have to our constituents to help solve our water challenges, we would be remiss in not taking every step possible to add such new sources to our inventories. The possibility of Cadiz providing 50 years of ready water, serving a minimum of 100,000 families per year, is an exceptionally positive step forward for our water management portfolio in Southern California.”
