Among other things, the agreement between the San Diego County Water Authority, the Coachella Valley Water Authority, the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California and the Imperial Irrigation District includes a 75-year deal for Imperial to sell water to San Diego. The agreement was reached after seven years of negotiations and pressure from the state and federal governments.
