Cadiz water project is alive

You remember Cadiz — that was the venture to bank water beneath the distant Mojave Desert, then pipe it into urban Southern California, envisioned by Friend-of-Antonio (and many other Democrats) Keith Brackpool. The project ran into some questions and environmental opposition, but it came roaring back today with the news that Cadiz signed a deal with five water agencies to move forward. Gov. Schwarzenegger gave his blessing and Cadiz's Nasdaq stock took off. The coverage doesn't say which agencies, or mention Brackpool even those he's listed on the Los Angeles-based company website as chairman and CEO. LABJ, Business wire release
