Saudi-owned farm in La Paz County denied plan for new wells

The state of Arizona has denied plans for two new deepwater wells requested by a farming operation in La Paz County owned by a Saudi Arabian dairy company.

Fondomonte Arizona already pumps enough groundwater to irrigate thousands of acres of land near Vicksburg, a 46-mile drive from Parker, where it uses it to grow alfalfa for export back to Saudi Arabia as dairy cow feed.
