Cadiz Inc. (CDZI) plans to build a water conservation, recovery and storage project in Cadiz, California, the US.
The project involves the development of a water conservation, recovery and storage facilities. It will be implemented in two phases.
The first phase includes the construction of a wellfield to capture approximately 50,000 acre-feet of groundwater per year and deliver it via a 69km underground water conveyance steel pipeline to the Colorado River Aqueduct.
The second phase includes the construction of a groundwater storage space to provide up to 1 million acre-feet of imported water and recharge basins. It will undergo a separate environmental review and permitting process after the first phase is completed.
The project will be developed under a public-private partnership mode.
CH2M Hill Ltd. has been appointed as the study consultant for the project.
In December 2011, the Santa Margarita Water District (SMWD) releases the Draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR) of the project for public review. SMWD, which served as the lead agency for the Project’s California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) permitting process and the Environmental Impact Report (EIR) is the implementing agency.
On July 31, 2012, the SMWD Board certified the Final EIR and approved the Project.
In November 2014, SMWD approves a Joint Powers Agreement (JPA) with CDZI and the Fenner Valley Mutual Water Company (FVWA).
