EL CENTRO — The Imperial Irrigation District officially endorsed a water bond initiative that could be included on the November ballot, which would secure an additional $200 million for the Salton Sea during their board meeting earlier this week.

The $8.8 billion water bond initiative focuses on water infrastructure and investments needed across the state and is a different proposal than the $4.1 billion park bond approved by the legislature last fall, which would also secure $200 million to the Salton Sea.
