An update to the Salton Sea Initiative

(IID Directors meet Tuesday afternoon)…The Meeting is open to the public at 1:00 pm.

During the meeting the Imperial Irrigation District Directors will receive an update on their Salton Sea Restoration and Renewable Energy Initiative. The Initiative was created by the District as a plan to save the dieing Sea and create new renewable energy sources for the state. The County agreed to partner with the IID to implement the Initiative. The idea is basically to develop geothermal energy plants on IID owned land in and around the Salton Sea, with the proceeds from the plants going towards the restoration of the Salton Sea. The District Directors will also be asked to take action on a proposed Equitable Distribution Plan apportionment reserve. The Tuesday meeting will be held in Condit Auditorium on Broadway in El Centro.
