The Imperial Irrigation District Board of Directors will be presented a preliminary implementation plan for the district's efficiency study.
The presentation is expected to include the plan's strategy, processes and schedule for implementation of the efficiency study. The $875,118 study identifies yearly savings of $31.6 million, with a one-time investment of about $10 million. Overall, the study says the net present value of the savings is estimated at $217 million.
The board meets in open session at 5 p.m. Tuesday in the William R. Condit Auditorium, 1285 Broadway, El Centro.
In other business, the board will discuss the possibility of purchasing insurance to cover the unexpected purchase of power on the open market when a district source fails. The district paid $3.5 million for such power when one of its generators had bearing problems for six weeks this summer.
The board also will consider:
· approving a plan to line the All-American Canal for $126 million, to be reimbursed by the state.
