EL CENTRO — Imperial Irrigation District’s outside counsel presented another report to refute a report made by The Desert Sun last month suggesting the district “left millions on the table” following the sale of farmland in 2011.

The latest article follows a series of reports which began in August which have raised concerns about the bidding process surrounding IID’s battery storage project and the potential conflicts of interest related to the district’s former close partnership with engineering ZGlobal.
