Last Day for farmers to submit Water Apportionment Forms



EL CENTRO – Today, December 31st, is the last day IID will be accepting Apportionment Acceptance Authorization (AAA) forms if the landowner is not accepting the defaults.

According to the Imperial County Farm Bureau,  the 2014 offered apportionment will default to the owner accepting all of the offered apportionment for his/her fields on a take-or-pay obligation.

The only mechanism to be rid of that obligation is to offer the water  for transfer through the Clearinghouse and someone accepts that water before the end of 2014.

If the owner is accepting the defaults then the form is not required to be submitted.
