    EL CENTRO — Although Imperial County’s emergency declaration in early November regarding pollution in the New River essentially met with silence, the county is considering extending that declaration for another 60 days.

    According to a memorandum from County CEO Tony Rouhotas to the supervisors, the county operation of emergency services director is aware the New River is a peril to human life and is a crisis beyond the control of Imperial County.
