The Imperial Irrigation District hosted a public workshop Wednesday to discuss the preservation of the IID’s water rights and the challenges posed by the massive water transfer at the heart of the Quantification Settlement Agreement. Yet, more than a year after the IID adopted an alternative approach to the QSA and less than two months after the validity of the transfer was upheld in court, the message from the district’s attorneys is essentially the same: The IID and the farm community must make a reasonable effort to conserve Colorado River water.
