Cadiz, Inc. Applies Full Pressure
To Influence Metropolitan Water Agency

September 15, 2012

      Cadiz, Inc., in an effort to acquire critical access to the Colorado River Aqueduct, has placed an extreme emphasis on bombarding the Metropolitan Water Agency with hundreds of letters supporting the company's project.

      At last report, allegedly over 800 letters of support have been sent to the MWA from businesses, chambers of commerce, consultants, engineers, labor organizations, suppliers and others who could become short-term financial beneficiaries should the proposed project become a reality.

      Cadiz, Inc. president, Scott Slater, has also been making appearances at a number of Southern California's water agencies attempting to influence a stronger foothold for his company.  Many of these agencies acquire water from the MWA and some have a member on the MWA's board.
