From the Imperial Valley Press:
“There is no shortage of Imperial Valley farmers who oppose the Quantification Settlement Agreement, the nation’s largest agriculture to urban-area water transfer.
“Many have challenged its validity in court over the last 10 years. Brawley farmer Mark Osterkamp is one.
“And while the court recently upheld the validity of the agreement after 10 years of lawsuits, accusations and bitter rhetoric, Osterkamp came to realize some time before that the water conservation measures at the heart of the transfer are an opportunity for farmers like him.”
