IID schedules public hearings to gain input on wildfire mitigation plan

Post Date:09/09/2019

Imperial Irrigation District has scheduled two public hearings in September on a proposed plan to mitigate wildfire dangers in the utility’s service area.

Under Senate Bill 901, the district is charged with obtaining public comments on a plan that addresses wildfire risks related to electrical infrastructure to establish programs and procedures to reduce risk, prepare for wildfire events and develop program oversight.

The new law was adopted following the fires of 2018 that devastated several areas of California.

The public hearings on IID’s wildfire mitigation plan will be held at 4:30 p.m. on:

  • Tuesday, September 17, Condit Auditorium, El Centro.
  • Thursday, September 19, IID Boardroom, La Quinta.
