Rep. Walters on BLM Determination Affecting Cadiz Water Project
WASHINGTON, D.C. – October 29, 2015 – (RealEstateRama) — U.S. Representative Mimi Walters (CA-45) released the following statement in response to the Bureau of Land Management’s recent determination related to the Cadiz Water Project’s proposed use of railroad right-of-way for a water conveyance pipeline.
Said Rep. Mimi Walters, “In light of California’s current drought crisis and ongoing water supply challenges, I am disappointed in BLM’s recent determination impacting the Cadiz Water Project. This project has the potential to help Californians, particularly within my district, overcome the serious impacts of our historic drought conditions and bring much-needed water and jobs into the state. I’m hopeful BLM will reconsider its determination and take into account the potentially devastating consequences that will result from a continued delay – or termination – of the project.”
Walters represents California’s 45th District and sits on the House Transportation and Infrastructure and Judiciary Committees.
