Imperial Valley United, a group formed to protect local water rights, has scheduled a panel discussion for Friday to discuss key water issues.
The luncheon will start at noon in the Plaza De La Cultura at the Imperial Valley Expo in Imperial.
The goal of the event is to address whether the Imperial Valley, San Diego County and northern Baja California represent an emerging water super region.
The panel will include Maureen Stapleton, general manager of the San Diego County Water Authority and Andy Horne, president of the Imperial Irrigation District Board of Directors.
Panel members are expected to address the political, economic and environmental issues affecting water and the region's future.
Cathy Kennerson, a member of Imperial Valley United and chief executive officer of the El Centro Chamber of Commerce & Visitor's Bureau, said one key goal of the event is to discuss where the Imperial Valley, San Diego and Mexico stand in their use of the Colorado River.
