(The County and the IID reach a consensus)….The two entities have been negotiating a settlement in the QSA Coordinated cases. On March 6th a Sacramento Superior Court granted a 90-day stay in litigation to allow the two sides to negotiate. Since then, the County, Imperial County Air Pollution Control District and the Imperial Irrigation District have been in meetings. They have been negotiating a set of basic terms that would define principals for the permanent stabilization of the Salton Sea and fulfillment of mitigation responsibilities to protect the public health. The County says now that a consensus has been reached, the next step is to negotiate a memorandum of understanding between the parties that would be presented to the other Quantification Settlement Agreement litigation parties and that would become part of an enforceable judgment submitted to the court for its approval.
