IID Directors amend new Program

(IID Directors amend the Farm-Unit Program)…The Program was approved by the Directors in March.

The Program replaces the original fallowing program. The purpose is to fulfill the annual water transfer delivery schedule for the San Diego County Water Authority, Salton Sea mitigation requirements, payback of previous years inadvertent overruns of Colorado River water, and, at times, to create extraordinary conservation and intentionally created surplus to assist in the management of the Imperial Irrigation’s annual 3.1 million acre-feet Colorado River consumptive use cap. One of the amendments approved increases to $175 per acre-foot payment rate from the previously approved $150.
