(The County and IID approve agreement)…The County Board of Supervisors approved it in the morning.
The Imperial Irrigation District Board of Directors approved in the afternoon. A special signing ceremony will be held Thursday at 11:00 am at Red Hill Marina, near the Salton Sea. The agreement is a Memorandum of Understanding concerning the Salton Sea Stabilization and Restoration. Linsey Dale of the local Farm Bureau told both entities the MOU was not perfect, but the Farm Bureau was very happy to see the two Boards working together. The MOU was negotiated between the IID and the County Supervisors for more than 3 months. In essence, the agreement says the two entities will work together on solutions to stabilize and restore the Salton Sea. The Air Pollution Control District will also be a part of Thursday’s signing ceremony.
