"Another unique feature of the Imperial Valley is the New River, which flows from south to north..." Why is this unique? As the article stands, it seems to imply that it's rare for rivers to flow from south to north, which is of course ridiculous. 126.96.36.199 10:36, 20 April 2006 (UTC)
The Nile runs from south to north. abelson 13:39, 20 April 2006 (UTC)
Yeah, It's pretty weird...where I live, whenever it rains water flows north instead of south (but that's probably because we are in a valey.?) Daniel 08.21.06
Also the New River is only one of two rivers that flow South to North in the Valley. There is also the Alamo River. Both are for all intents and purposes drainage ditches. The only interesting bit about the New River, is that it was formed in the 1905 flood that also formed the Salton Sea. -Flynwill
Imperial Valley and Salton Sea Basin
Is there any distinction? Aren't they simply two names for the same thing? Or...??? Tmangray 01:36, 14 November 2007 (UTC)
- Two answer your question the Imperial Valley applies to a valley located fulley within American borders while the SSB would apply to the basin that encompasses both regions in Mexico and the US border area. —Preceding unsigned comment added by SoCal L.A.

- The Imperial Valley can be considered the lower portion of the Coachella Valley topographically, "rebranded" in the early 1900s for land development purposes. It is a geographic and cultural designation. The Salton Sink or Salton Trough (Salton Sea Basin) is a geologic and watershed designation of an endorheic basin, with an endorheic lake of the saline lake type - the Salton Sea; located in the Southern Mojave-Salton region of the Great Basin. cheers----Look2See1 t a l k → 21:35, 28 June 2010 (UTC)

Wikipedians in California may be able to help!
I rated this article as "start" class, because it seems to be missing information like:
- Major crops and economic activity
- Government - municipalities, counties, etc.
- Controversies over water rights
Severe Article Improvements
As you may have noticed i completely redid the whole article giving it categories images and new information. I made it at least 4 times as long. Hopefully more people can add to it though! SoCal L.A. (talk) 09:21, 2 January 2010 (UTC)
- This article needs a section on education. —Preceding unsigned comment added by SoCal L.A. (talk • contribs) 00:00, 10 January 2010 (UTC)
- Removed the Red-diamond Rattlesnake from list of fauna that occurs in the Imperial County section of the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park. The snake does occur in Anza-Borrego, but its eastern range ends at the desert slopes of the Peninsular Range in San Diego County, far from the San Diego County and Imperial County line.188.8.131.52 (talk) 02:29, 9 May 2011 (UTC)
Imperial Valley redirects to this page (Imperial Valley (California)). Because there seems to be no need for a disambiguous page, is it necessary to add the '(California)' to the article's title? If not, the article should be moved to 'Imperial Valley' and the current title should redirect there. --Credema (talk) 17:01, 6 July 2012 (UTC)
The statement "Agriculture accounts for one-fourth of jobs" contradict with the statement " Agriculture is the largest industry in the Imperial Valley and accounts for 48% of all employment". אביהו (talk) 10:32, 7 April 2017 (UTC)
Renewable energy should be updated
That section use as reference an article from 2009. A lot happened since then and two companies mentioned in this section (Stirling Energy Systems and CalEnergy) are out of business. The present ("is currently building one of the world's largest solar thermal plants") is now a past. The plant (Imperial Valley Solar Farm) was built but was switched to Photovoltaic power station and the CalEnergy facility is now operated by BHE Renewables. אביהו (talk) 15:06, 7 April 2017 (UTC)
