An interceptor canal will be constructed near the end of eight laterals to collect and transport operational discharge and returned farm deliveries to a reservoir for temporary storage. The water will then be pumped over to an adjacent canal system for delivery. This project is being funded by the Imperial Irrigation District - Metropolitan Water District of Southern California (IID-MWD) Water Conservation Agreement. This paper describes the planning process for the project.
