Water Authority Hosts Tour of Key Water Facilities for Imperial Valley Representatives
Representatives from some of the Imperial Valley's leading agencies and organizations joined Water Authority staff and Board members on a day long tour of San Diego County water facilities on October 19. The participants were from the Imperial Irrigation District, Imperial County, the agricultural and business communities, cities and chambers.
They toured the Claude "Bud" Lewis Carlsbad Desalination Plant, San Vicente Dam and Reservoir and the East County Advanced Water Purification Project, which are each part of the San Diego region's effort to maintain a safe and reliable water supply.
The Water Authority and Imperial Irrigation District are long-term partners in the nation's largest agriculture-to-urban water conservation and transfer agreement. Periodic meetings and tours promote collaboration by allowing people from Imperial and San Diego counties to continue building relationships.
