Protect Water, Jobs, and Our Future.

THE THREAT IS BACK – NOW AS SB 307

Last year, a broad coalition of more than 60 local, state, and national organizations – including labor unions, local government groups, community groups, chambers, cities, and water agencies – came together to oppose SB 120 because it was bad policy that would have created new uncertainty for any infrastructure project in California, jeopardizing affordable, reliable services for all communities. Thanks to the strength of our coalition, in the waning hours of the session the bill was held by the Senate Appropriations Committee and was stopped.

SB 120 has reappeared word-for-word as SB 307, introduced by Sen. Roth (D-Riverside). Like its predecessor, it would change the rules of the game in an effort to stop the Cadiz Valley Water Conservation, Recovery and Storage Project by requiring an unprecedented “double jeopardy” environmental review for the project – even though it has been reviewed, approved, and deemed safe for the environment under the most aggressive environmental law in the nation, the California Environmental Quality Act, by local and state agencies, and by California’s courts.

Adopting SB307 would further chill Southern California water supply reliability, attacking well-established water transportation laws that encourage the movement of water across the state.

The dangerous precedent set by the bill would inject even more uncertainty for other projects reviewed and approved under CEQA, including transportation improvements, school and hospital construction, drought and wildfire response projects, and affordable housing projects.

About the Cadiz Water Project

An innovative, new sustainable water source for Southern California.

Prevents Water Loss

The project will recover an annual average of 50,000 acre-feet of groundwater before it evaporates.

Creates A New Water Supply

The Cadiz Water Project will create a new water supply – enough for 100,000 families a year.

Economic Activity

The Project would create and support over 5,900 jobs and generate nearly $1 billion in economic activity.

No Environmental Impact

The Cadiz Water Project will have no negative impact on the desert environment, including flora, fauna and wildlife.

Renewable Water Supply

Detailed scientific analysis of the Project has confirmed that the groundwater is naturally renewable.

Stabilize Our Water Supply

The Cadiz Project offers certainty in both wet and dry years that our water supply will be available.
