Imperial Irrigation District

Imperial Irrigation District Filming Permit


A couple things to keep in mind when filming on IID properties:

Insurance certificates (ACORD) issued separately to IID and ICFC and listing the respective entity as an additional insured, must be received prior to permit being approved.  Both applications and insurance certificates must be emailed to myself and Susie Carrillo (iidfilmpermits@iid.com) .

If filming in Bombay Beach, Niland and Salton City area, requestor must email County Fire (info on IID permit) and advise the type of production, location, date(s) and state whether pyro, ammo, fire, etc. will be utilized.  Please cc myself (Filmhere@sbcglobal.net) and Susie (iidfimpermits@iid.com) on the email to County Fire.  Once all information is received, permits will be reviewed and approved if requirements are met.

All permit applications must be submitted as soon as possible but no later than five (5) business days prior to your proposed film dates in order to be considered for permitting.
