Founded more than 25 years ago, Cadiz Inc. is a renewable resource company based in Los Angeles that owns over 70 square miles of property with significant water resources and clean energy potential. We are dedicated to pursuing sustainable projects through the responsible stewardship of our land and water resources.
Our properties, which are located at three sites in the eastern Mojave Desert portion of San Bernardino County, offer abundant and renewable sources of clean water, an almost pest-free environment perfect for organic farming, and excellent possibilities for solar energy production. Two of our properties are situated in proximity to the Colorado River Aqueduct, the major source of imported water for southern California, while the third is located near the Colorado River.
Our current projects include:
The Cadiz Valley Water Conservation, Recovery and Storage Project – This innovative project will provide a much-needed, reliable water supply in Southern California by conserving water that otherwise would have been lost to evaporation. The Project also offers the ability to store groundwater supplies and imported surplus water in wet years. Our Cadiz Valley property will be home to the Project.
Organic agricultural operations – A total of 9,600 acres at our Cadiz Valley property are zoned for agriculture – permanent crops include lemons and certified-organic dried-on-the-vine raisins. Seasonal crops can include a variety of vegetables and fruits such as squash, melons, peppers, asparagus, and more. We maintain sustainable agricultural practices, including organic farming.
Sustainable land use – We strongly believe in being a good steward of our land and water resources, always guided by the principle of sustainability. In addition to our water and agriculture projects, we are exploring potential solar energy and permanent conservation uses at our properties.
