New Website Dedicated to Stopping AB 1000’s Impact on Cadiz Water Project

A new website has been launched to provide all the facts you need to know about AB 1000 and its potential impact on the Cadiz Water Project – and, because of the precedent it would set, other water infrastructure projects and water transfers, and potentially any project reviewed under the California Environmental Quality Act.

Log onto www.StopAB1000.com for all the facts about this bill, which one Metropolitan Water District director recently called “a truly bizarre bill.” The bill would modify the State Water Code to require that groundwater projects in certain, specified desert areas that use public water conveyance systems must undergo an additional review process over and above what is required by the California Environmental Quality Act – the U.S.’ most stringent environmental law. The language targets the Cadiz Water Project, but many of the bill’s more than 60 opponents, including water agencies, municipalities, unions, businesses and business organizations, and hydrologists, oppose the bill because of the dangerous precedents it would set.

While on the site, be sure to click the “Take Action” tab. There, you can quickly send a letter to your representatives in the California legislature encouraging them to help us kill the bill before it can subject the Cadiz Water Project to unfair and unwarranted over-regulation, kill good jobs, and make it more difficult for Southern California’s water agencies to respond to drought.
