The Controversial Cadiz Pipeline

The Controversial Cadiz Pipeline

Riverside, CA

Late last month, the U.S. Bureau of Land Management (BLM) revoked two legal directives issued during the Obama era that ultimately prevented Cadiz, Inc. from using an existing federal railroad right-of-way to install a new water pipeline—as proposed, the pipeline would carry water from its proposed well in the desert to the Colorado River Aqueduct. Cadiz, Inc. appealed the initial BLM decision, but the Obama administration refused to overturn it. 

Now that the Bureau of Land Management directives are revoked—Cadiz is better positioned to move forward with it plans to pump groundwater from the Mojave Desert and sell to urban areas in the southern part of the state despite environmental and other concerns. 

U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein has been very vocal about her opposition to the pipeline. She released a statement in response to BLM’s reversal of the Obama era ruling. “The Trump administration has once again put corporate profits ahead of the public’s interest,” she lamented.
