Stakeholder Workshop

October 10, 2019

Aquilogic moderated a stakeholder workshop at Three Valleys Municipal Water District in Claremont, California. More than 30 technical experts, water industry officials and other interested parties provided input on how the Bonanza Spring Study should be carried out.

Upcoming research will address data gaps and questions about whether groundwater pumping at the Cadiz Project would harm natural springs and associated ecosystems in the mountains surrounding Fenner Valley.
