EL CENTRO — Imperial Irrigation District water safety mascot Dippy Duck and the IID Board of Directors presented $16,000 in summer activity grants to eight Imperial Valley communities as part of the district’s water safety campaign during the board’s June 18 meeting.

The funds help make swimming pools and other activities available for children and adults to keep them busy during the hot summer months while supporting Dippy Duck’s message to stay away from canals and waterways.
