Good editorial, informative as well as timely.
I agree with it and wonder why the lawyers working for the plaintiffs could not foresee this, "or" did he?

My opinion is that they have just been sucked in to be manipulated and compromised, raped if you will! It is almost as if the defendants wrote the complaint.

No I have not read it. But would like for it to be published.

The aquifers should not be pumped and sold by private land owners is what I believe.

Those with entitlements to water that flows courtesy of public funded infrastructure should not be encouraged to profit off of the sale of their water allocations. When the editor opines that "several other districts were conducting environmental studies needed to do exactly that..." he may not be aware that the "studies" are simply a checklist of claims that the water transfer will have no significant environmental impacts. This bold assertion ignores the fact that the marketed water must be transported through the pumps in the Delta that are destroying what's left of the central valley salmon that once provided jobs to thousands of professional fishermen.
Checklists are NOT studies.
