( IID Declares the month of May as Water Safety Month)....With the summer heat approaching and breaks from school following, the IID Board of Directors decided to adopt the resolution during their last Board meeting

. The action clears the way for the IID Mascot Dippy Duck to share the water safety message with school children across Imperial County as the school year winds down. Dippy Duck will also be promoting the Water Safety message all summer long. The Stay Active, Play Safe, Be Cool Campaign began in April. The campaign reinforces Dippy Ducks 3 rules; Never Swim in a canal, Never play near a canal, Never jump into a canal. Water Safety Month has been an annual event since 1959
