Cadiz Valley Water Project Public Comment Hearing Completed

Cadiz Inc. (NASDAQ: CDZI) reported today that the Santa Margarita Water District (“SMWD”), the lead agency of the environmental review process for the Company's Cadiz Valley Water Conservation, Recovery and Storage Project (“Project”), conducted a public hearing yesterday evening to receive comment on the Project’s Final Environmental Impact Report (“Final EIR”) and related documents. At the conclusion of public comment, the Board adjourned the meeting until Tuesday, July 31 st at 6:00pm when it will begin deliberations to consider certification of the Final EIR. More details about the July 31 st meeting are available at www.smwd.com.

At the public hearing, the Project received substantial support from the community, businesses, and water industry experts. Organizations that testified in support of the Project included South Orange County Chamber of Commerce and Economic Coalition, Association of California Cities-Orange County, Orange County Taxpayers Association, Rancho Santa Margarita Chamber of Commerce, Rancho Cucamonga Chamber of Commerce, the Engineering Contractors Association and Professionals for Water Supply Reliability.

In addition to those that testified at the hearing, close to 2,000 South Orange County, California residents and SMWD customers signed cards expressing support for SMWD’s efforts to improve water supply reliability with this Project. These cards were submitted at the hearing. In addition to the outpouring of support from South Orange County residents, nearly 500 support cards from the Hi-Desert region of San Bernardino County, which is local to the Project area, were also added at the hearing.

About the Project

The Cadiz Project will provide a new, reliable water supply for approximately 400,000 Southern Californians by capturing and conserving groundwater that will otherwise be lost to evaporation from a vast aquifer system beneath private property owned by Cadiz Inc. in California’s Mojave Desert. In its first phase, the Project will deliver up to an average of 50,000 acre-feet per year to Southern California water providers, including SMWD, Three Valleys Municipal Water District, Suburban Water Systems, Golden State Water Company, Jurupa Community Services District, and California Water Service Company. The Arizona & California Railroad Company, which owns and operates the railroad right-of-way to be used by the Project’s proposed water conveyance pipeline, will also receive water from the Project. A second potential future phase of the Project offers approximately one million acre-feet of aquifer storage capacity that can be used to carry-over, or “bank,” annual supplies, without the high rates of evaporative loss suffered by local surface reservoirs.
