The more Cadiz changes…

… the more it remains the same. At a meeting in Ontario, CA, today of the Association of Ground Water Agencies, the speculator Cadiz, Inc will present a privately-commissioned study showing that the Mojave aquifer it proposes to pump can yield  50,000 acre feet of water a year, or enough for 400,000 people.

Business Week* and the Cadiz website have the stories, which in the case of Cadiz’s version is just that — a story.
