The Project was exhaustively reviewed and then approved in 2012 in accordance with the California Environmental Quality Act ("CEQA"). Earlier this summer, the CEQA approvals were sustained by the California Court of Appeal in six sweeping opinions in favor of the Project. With legal review of the Project under CEQA exhausted, the Company and its supporters are working to finalize arrangements to convey water from Cadiz via a pipeline to the Colorado River Aqueduct and then into the service areas of Project participants.About the CalChamberThe California Chamber of Commerce is the largest broad-based business advocate to government in California.
