It's time to stop the Cadiz Water Project for good

The science shows that the Cadiz Water Project would mine enormous quantities of water from the Mojave Desert to make Cadiz, Inc. billions of dollars by providing that water to urban Southern California cities. There's only one problem - it would almost certainly turn the desert into a dead wasteland.
The research shows that the springs and seeps that provide life-sustaining water to desert wildlife and insect populations, prime desert habitat, migratory birds, the threatened desert tortoise and desert bighorn sheep, desert kit fox, and Mojave fringe-toed lizard, are connected to the aquifer that Cadiz wants to sell. While Cadiz claims they will "monitor" water levels, by the time significant reductions in groundwater would be noted, the damage would be done. Permanently.
Destroying life in the eastern Mojave Desert would be disastrous. Not just for the wildlife that would die, but for the people of the Mojave as well. The region is heavily dependent upon travel and tourism for jobs for our residents who come from around the world to view our national parks and monuments, Route 66, Areas of Critical Environmental Concern, Wilderness, state parks, and other attractions and recreational areas.
This region is also historically, culturally, and spiritually significant for the Native American tribes of the Mojave Desert and must be protected from further degradation.
We're asking those organizations, businesses, and individuals who have come out in support of this disastrous project to publicly renounce their support and to voice their support for the environmental health of California's Mojave Desert - and its residents.
Please join Mojave Watch in asking supporters of the Cadiz Water Project to reconsider their support for this destructive project. Thank you.
