A new peer-reviewed research study funded by the Mojave Desert Land Trust was published on April 13 in the Journal of Scientific Forensics. The study concludes that the proposed Cadiz water-mining project would diminish the flow of water in the largest spring in the area - Bonanza Spring - and thus harm the viability of the flora and fauna that rely on it. The news release by the National Parks Conservation Association provides background and details, and KCDZ radio station's report includes a link to the Journal article. The Desert Sun has also reported on the study.
Additional information on this event will be posted here when available. Donna Charpied was "one of the true champions of our desert" as described in this KCDZ news story upon notice of her death in November 2017.
Detailed directions to the Charpied's Jojoba Farm: From I-10 Desert Center Exit drive north for 8.5 miles on Kaiser Road. Pass the Eagle sign on the right. Go down dirt road 1 mile.
