City attempts to block water banking project


By Lois Henry

From Bakersfield Californian – Monday, June 27, 2011

Coalition response...Individuals concerned over water transfers out of the Kern basin miss the fact that local water banking projects have enabled millions of acre-feet of water from other areas of the state to come into the basin. Much of that water would have never come close to Kern County. Those projects benefit local water users as well as the individuals and agencies outside of the basin that pay for the water and the facilities to “bank” it in the ground near Bakersfield. It is unfortunate that the City built the water treatment plant with its dollars rather than developer dollars. Is it right to expect a third-party to repay those costs when there may be no legal obligation?
