(College of the Desert Science Lab to be named after the IID)…The Imperial Irrigation District Directors agreed to donate to the College Foundation.
The $25,000 donation was made with a stipulation. The IID Board challenged the Coachella Valley Water District to increase their donation to the College to equal the one approved by the IID. Peter Strugeon with the College of the Desert Foundation said with the donation said the science lab at the new Indio campus will be named the Imperial Irrigation District Science Lab. The IID provides energy to the area where the new campus is located, as well as to the homes of the students attending class at the new campus.
