    LOS ANGELES — Imperial Irrigation District’s position that it will not approve a seven-state drought contingency plan for the Colorado River without a guaranteed funding commitment from the federal government for the Salton Sea is being tested on a couple of fronts.

    IID General Manager Henry Martinez was in Los Angeles Monday to speak to the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California’s Water Planning and Stewardship Committee to address a proposal that would bypass IID as a participating entity in the DCP and thus undermine its efforts to secure Salton Sea funding.
