California is Reviewing Proposals to Import Seawater to the Salton Sea

The California Natural Resources Agency is reviewing proposals for importing Seawater to the Salton Sea, as a means to maintain current lake volume.  Proposals to the agency for seawater import were due on March 9th, 2018.

Seawater import can be an effective mechanism to maintain lake volume, but it is also associated with many ecological side effects such as the increased salinity levels and the loss of aquatic biodiversity.   To learn more, about the opportunities and issues associated with seawater import, check out our whitepaper Ecological Restoration Potential of Management Strategies at the Salton Sea
