  • Cadiz, Inc. (Cadiz) owns land in San Bernardino County, which overlies the Cadiz Valley and Fenner Valley aquifer system in the Mojave Desert. The aquifer is estimated to contain 17 to 34 million acre-feet of fresh groundwater. Currently this groundwater flows downward to dry lakes, where it mixes with highly salinated groundwater before evaporating. Once the groundwater reaches the dry lakes, it becomes unusable as fresh water.
