Freeway 65 is a 1959 idea created when water seemed like an inexhaustible resource. Water usage that Freeway 65 growth would foster will impact everyone in the Madera/Fresno area below its path. The water table will be lowered, increasing pumping costs for those on private wells. Competition for other water resources will increase prices of water for all.
Freeway 65 will only benefit a few developers and harm us all in the long term.
