An El Centro farmer’s lawsuit to stop the implementation of the Imperial Irrigation District’s water apportionment plan has been halted. Under the terms of the stipulation, IID will transfer to Mike Abatti the remainder of his 3.7 acre-foot allocation before transferring an additional 5,000 acre-feet of water in October from the district’s Agricultural Water Clearinghouse.
