SWRCB Petition


The State Water Resources Control Board conducted a public workshop on March 18, 2015, in Sacramento to receive information and solicit public input regarding the status of the Salton Sea and the future of the nation’s largest agricultural-to-urban water transfer.

This public workshop was in response to IID’s petition seeking modification of the state water board’s Revised Order WRO 2002-0013, which approved long-term water transfers to Southern California under the Quantification Settlement Agreement.

In its petition, filed with the state board on Nov. 18, 2014, IID offers a specific process and timetable for the parties to the 2003 QSA, the landmark water-sharing pact that has enabled California to live within its annual entitlement of 4.4 million acre-feet from the Colorado River, to reach consensus on the most realistic and sustainable Salton Sea restoration plan.
