(County seeks help on New River issue)….They say the river is hurting economic growth.

In November the County Board of Supervisors adopted a proclamation declaring a Local Emergency at the New River. This week the Board of Supervisors adopted a letter to Commissioner Jayne Harkins of the International Boundary Water Commission. The letter seeks any effort aimed at improving the condition of the New River to reinvigorate the local economy and significantly improve the health of Imperial County residents.
