Water supply

Water deal would benefit both San Diego and Imperial counties


From SD Union-Tribune - Friday, Dec. 16, 2011

Coalition response...Regions throughout California, not just San Diego, are continually striving to secure reliable water supplies for the future. The cost of new water is a significant factor when searching for new supplies. However, the author presents a comparison between water use in Imperial Valley and San Diego and seemingly suggests that the value of farm products between the two regions is a factor on the use of water. Such a comparison is misleading.
California agriculture is diverse and the value of different crops varies widely. Small changes in crop production based on perceived water/crop value can have enormous effects on the market value for those crops, according to a recent study by the Center for Agricultural Business at CSU, Fresno. 
Water use and crop production decisions are most appropriately made at the local level by the people who farm the land and who hold the rights to the water they use.
