It was with these modifications that the board passed the item.
Director Stella Mendoza, who voted against the resolution, said the board needs more time before passing a resolution like this.
"We're just jumping the gun," she said.
A finalized quantification agreement has yet to be completed and a preferred Salton Sea restoration project yet to be named, both of which are important components of the resolution.
"We're putting the cart before the horse," said Director Bruce Kuhn, who also voted against the resolution.
"We're asking for funding for a report that's not complete," Kuhn said.
Kuhn also took issue with the lumping together of several issues that started separately, he said.
According to the meeting's agenda, the Coachella Valley Water District, Metropolitan Water District and San Diego County Water Authority have adopted similar resolutions of support.
The Salton Sea Authority was scheduled to vote on a similar resolution at a meeting today.
Director and Board President Andy Horne said that he, too, is concerned about the position in which passing the resolution will put the IID.
It's going to be difficult to get all these things done to all the interested parties' satisfaction, Horne said.
"It's our goal and also our responsibility to attempt to do just that," Horne said.
In the end, the desire to move these issues forward won out as Horne and directors Lloyd Allen and Rudy Maldonado voted to pass the resolution.
The quantification settlement establishes IID's right to 3.1 million acre-feet of Colorado River water each year. It also calls for the annual transfer of 200,000 and 100,000 acre-feet of water to SDWA and CVWD, respectively.
