History

The town was named in 1883 by Lewis Kingman, a locating engineer for the Atlantic and Pacific Railroad. It is the third in a string of alphabetically named railroad stations in the Mojave Desert.[2]

Climate

This area has a large amount of sunshine year round due to its stable descending air and high pressure.[citation needed]

Current activity

The ZIP Code is 92304 and the community is inside area code 760. The Cadiz Valley area overlies a large aquifer and is located approximately 30 miles (48 km) north of the Colorado River Aqueduct.[citation needed]

Cadiz, Inc., a Los Angeles-based land and water-resource-management company, owns more than 35,000 acres (140 km2) around Cadiz.[citation needed] It has controversial plans to sell water from the aquifer.[3][4][5] Under a Trump Administration change of policy, the project may not have to undergo federal review.[6]

Railroads

Cadiz is served by the BNSF Railway's Southern Transcon line that runs from Los Angeles to Chicago. It was previously the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway line. From Cadiz, the Arizona & California Railroad runs over a former ATSF line to Phoenix via Parker, Arizona.[citation needed]

In September 2013, Cadiz, Inc. had negotiated the Arizona & California Railroad for trackage rights for a tourist train operation between Cadiz and Parker. The train is projected to be powered by a steam locomotive, listing Santa Fe 3751 as the potential engine. The plans also require a new station and museum in Cadiz.[7]

Cadiz Airstrip

Cadiz Airstrip (CA90) is situated south of the railroad tracks and has one paved runway 8/26 with a length of 5,280 feet (1,610 m). The airstrip is accessible through a dirt road and has no buildings.[8]
