EL CENTRO — The Imperial Irrigation District chose not to comment on how and why the district requested and scheduled doctor appointments for an employee who had already died.

Three months after IID dive team member Jonathan Burnworth died last October while trying to secure hooks to a car submerged in a canal, not everyone working for the district seemed to be aware of his passing.
