The Imperial Valley Economic Development Corporation is hosting a forum on local and regional water issues Thursday at the Barbara Worth Resort & Country Club. Many regional water issues boil down to water reliability. Colorado River water users are grappling with the effects of 14 consecutive years of drought. Locally, the Imperial Irrigation District is in the process of paying back thousands of acre-feet of water from the Colorado River that it ordered above its annual allocation two years in a row.
