Newhall Ranch Development
Re “Growing in the Wrong Direction,” Feb. 9. The article concerning the many negative aspects of the Newhall [Ranch] development only briefly touched water supply. The rains this season will provide ample water for us this year and next. Then what? Drought is as normal as floods and recurring. We are losing a percent of Owens River water. Arizona is using 100% of its allocation, which further cuts our supply of the excess. The Central Valley is claiming more state water, cutting down on that source.
