Adam Keats '97 Comments for KPIX-5 on Environmental Suit

Adam Keats '97, senior attorney with Center for Biological Diversity, serves as a source of information and commentary for a news report on San Francisco CBS affiliate KPIX-5 regarding a lawsuit over the state's transfer of ownership of the Kern Water Bank, a major Central Valley aquifer, to two private companies.

The suit, filed by the Center for Biological Diversity along with the California Sportfishing Alliance and several Delta water districts, holds that the underground water reservoir ought not to be a privately controlled resource.  "Should we leave it to a couple of rich guys to decide how to distribute it, or should we let that be the democratic process that our governor and our elected officials if they really had our interests at heart, would distribute fairly?"
