IMPERIAL COUNTY— Imperial Irrigation District water safety mascot Dippy Duck and the district’s board of directors presented $14,000 in summer activity grants to Imperial Valley communities and school districts as part of the district’s water safety campaign during the June 28 board meeting.

Funds are intended to help communities and school districts make swimming pools and other activities available for children during the hot summer months, supporting Dippy Duck’s message to stay away from canals and water ways. In 2016, the safety mascot celebrated his 50th year of the successful campaign to promote water safety.

Summer activity grants were awarded to: City of Imperial, City of Brawley, City of Calipatria, City of Westmorland, City of El Centro, City of Holtville and the Calexico Unified School District. A grant of $2,000 is pending for Imperial Valley College.

  1. To all IID employees (Supervisors, Superintendents, Mangers, and Board members included) your badge does not give you special consideration when dealing with the Bulk Electric System. All power emergencies are dealt with accordingly. It does not matter who you are and most definitely doesn’t take into consideration who you know or how many acres you own. The only time special considerations are made is when an outage is affecting critical infrastructure such as hospitals, schools, police stations, and fire stations. Your phone calls will fall on deaf ears.
