The Imperial Irrigation District Board of Directors is scheduled to take formal action Tuesday to name the El Centro generating station after former IID Director Don Cox.
Cox has been credited with saving rate-payers millions of dollars.
The board meets in open session at 5 p.m. in the William R. Condit Auditorium, 1285 Broadway, El Centro.
The board is scheduled to consider formally adopting a resolution against using fallowing as a method for generating water to help restore the Salton Sea.
To date, however, the board has not formally adopted a definition of fallowing.
Board President Andy Horne said he defines it as deliberately taking land out of production for the purpose of transferring the water or using it for the environment; "For something other than farming," he said.
Division 3 Director Lloyd Allen said he does not have a definition. He said fallowing is used various ways by farmers, including to let the ground rest, to provide hunting habitat and under government order.
