I know what we can do
In the paper they list new business license
Each week-- if some of share the work
Each time a new business starts up we call cops
And outher agencies -- and make stuff up - and report them for it

WHO WANTS TO HELP ??

This board has been quiet now for several days. What's going on? No one interested in GV farming?

With the amount of dust that has been pouring off of that land I cannot say I am interested in GV farming at all. I am more interested in rules regarding grading and such either on a state or county level. We do live in the desert, yes indeed, but the level of dust coming off of that plot has been rediculous. I was thinking though that it must have been the same when they were grading the Rhodes area as I did not live here at that time.

What are you GVs' identical twin brother? Get over it already, the land was "GRADED" a while ago. If you don't like dust in Dusty Valley then move back to where you came from. Dust has been a problem long before Rhodes came around and passing a law on grading ain't going to solve it.

Being the largest private home builder this side of the Mississippi River-- and your still

My only concern is water. Even being frugal in their use of water when they expand to 40,000 acres they will use massive amounts of water. Recent water studies showed the water table in GV has dropped 55ft since 1947. According to the an article in the DM today Kingman farms stated there is enough water for a generation. It would be nice to know there will be enough water for future generations. I know now that every moron with a computer will post stating that there is an endless supply of water in GV. Unless they quote a reliable source of their information it is bull----. I am all for the farm if water does not become a problem.

the 40,000 acres isn't in Golden Valley, it is within the 80,000 acres he has throughout Mohave County. Some in White hills, Temple Bar, Red Lake, and a couple of locations near the airport. The farm will be spreadout across all his holdings.
They do this same type of irrigation in the Coachella Valley where water is very scarce.

In the Coachella Valley, the farmers get their water from the All American Canal, which comes from the Colorado River. The same goes for Imperial Valley and Blythe farms. There is no comparison to Golden Valley.

Just because it is not water from an aquifer doesn't mean it's not comparable. It still has to do with water rights or where you are at on the "Water Chain". The Palo Verde Valley or Blythe as you refer to it has first rights to the water, so they waste the most by flood irrigation. Next in line is Imperial Valley. They also flood but will capture the water and fertilizer from the first field to irrigate a second field.
California and Arizona then are given the remaining water, from which Coachella Valley is allotted a very small portion to irrigate with. Thus the comparison in that they use subterranean drip irrigation to ration their usage of water in order to farm the valley.
