The Imperial Irrigation District board has opted to delay a district efficiency study at least until June as some board members questioned the need for such a study.
The efficiency study was recommended by the IID's water conservation advisory board and groups such as the Imperial County Farm Bureau have lobbied for such a study.
In past meetings, directors expressed interest in moving ahead with such a study. Bids were sought from accounting firms to conduct such a study.
The low bid was just over $412,000 and was presented by Pricewaterhouse/Coopers, a national accounting firm. That study would delve into both the water and power departments and other IID support services.
