(San Diego County Water Authority approves study)…It is a feasibility study.

It will determine if it is feasible to create a pipeline to transport water from Imperial County to San Diego County. The water would be the transfer water approved under the Quantification Settlement Agreement. The plan was presented to the Imperial Irrigation District Directors at their meeting June 18th. The assistant General Manager of the San Diego County Water Authority Dan Denham said the study would cost the Authority just over $3 million. Thursday the San Diego Board agreed to the funding, after being told the study would take around 2 years to complete. IID Board President Erik Ortega was at the San Diego Board meeting Thursday. Ortega told the Board the project may be an idea whose time has come. The Thursday meeting marked the 75th anniversary of the SDCWA, and Ortega was one of the invited guests taking part in the celebration.
