(Farm Bureau wants a response)…..Another letter was submitted to the Imperial Irrigation District Board Tuesday.
The Imperial County Farm Bureau wants the IID Directors to issue a written statement, siding with a court decision, that the water the district holds in trust is appurtenant to the land. The Farm Bureau asked the Board to take a stand on the issue in February. This week another letter was hand delivered to the Board by County Farm Bureau Executive Director Linsey Dale. The Board said they wanted to address that issue in a future workshop. Director Steve Benson also said he felt it was important that the Directors develop a water guidance policy for current and future water users.
