EL CENTRO — The good news for the Imperial Irrigation District is that farmers are doing a really good job conserving water. The bad news is that they’re doing such a good job the district has no place to store the surplus, meaning it's facing paying for water it won’t be able to keep.

That problem was at the heart of a special informational meeting of the IID Board of Directors Friday afternoon. The meeting was before a packed room that included many members of the local ag community.
