The All Valley Water Workshop scheduled for Saturday has been postponed because the governor has ordered that land fallowing be the source of water conservation for the water transfer.
IID Division 4 Director Rudy Maldonado said the meeting was canceled because the governor's office has apparently already made its decision on the transfer.
Gov. Gray Davis, through his cabinet secretary, reportedly ordered members of the IID Board of Directors to "seriously consider" fallowing as a means of water conservation for transfer and to help save the Salton Sea. Davis administration officials publicly disagree with the interpretation of the meeting.
