The project, if approved, would transfer groundwater in the parched, remote eastern San Bernardino County desert to parts of Orange County and other locations
Pop star Sia is doing more than promoting music with her Twitter account. The “Chandelier” singer is throwing her support behind an important issue in Southern California: the Cadiz water project.
The project, if approved, would transfer groundwater in the remote eastern San Bernardino County desert to parts of Orange County and other locations A recent action by many to block the project in the California state senate was defeated.
On Twitter, Sia posted a message Friday, Sept. 8, before the vote, that read: “Please #preserveCA and let the CAleg vote on #AB1000. No more fronting for Cadiz in SanBernardino!” The singer also tagged California senators Kevin de Leon and Senator Ricardo Lara.
Sia joins a number of other high profile figures to comment on the project.
“I’ m deeply disappointed that the state legislature is actively blocking a bill to prevent Cadiz — one of the Trump administration’s pet projects — from destroying the Mojave Desert, ” U. S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., said in a statement.
The singer is no stranger to the Southern California desert region. She performed what many called a “stunning” performance at the 2016 Coachella Music and Arts Festival in Indio.
