The Imperial Irrigation District said Jan. 17 that they are trying to improve the environment, and to prove it, they’re willing to give the public a tour.

IID Marketing & Communications Specialist Susie Carrillo said, “Have the public get firsthand knowledge of what actually is taking place with the Salton Sea, with Imperial Dam – how our water system works.”

There will be three tours – Feb. 7, 8 and 13. Each tour will last approximately five hours.

Special speakers will be aboard each chartered bus talking to the nearly forty visitors.

“This is first-hand knowledge from our experts that are familiar working on these projects,” Carrillo said.

They’ll highlight the over ten million dollars’ worth of work in the area.

“So people know what the future of the Salton Sea is; what IID’s action plans are and how we’re doing our best to save the Salton Sea,” Carrillo said.

The tours are a part of the companies plan to keep the public informed. More tours will be planned for the fall.
