San Diego Water Payments Fund A Slaughterhouse And Lots Of Other Stuff In Imperial County

By paying their water bills, San Diego residents have sent $2.5 million to help reopen a slaughterhouse in Imperial County. It’s one project of many that San Diegans supported through water payments that were earmarked for Imperial County, our neighbor to the east. There’s $346,000 and counting to fight cancer, $1 million to a food bank, $2.5 million to get an ethanol plant up and running, $15,000 to purchase tools for a body shop, $650,000 to expand a tortilla-making business, and $5,000 help a Methodist church hand out food and gas vouchers.
