Salton Sea may get new lease on life
SALTON SEA – (INT) – An ongoing effort to preserve the quality of life around California’s largest lake is taking on a renewed emphasis.

A series of public hearings and workshops will continue through the summer under the auspices of the Salton Sea Task Force which was created last year. The immediate emphasis is on dust control.

The task force says managing the Salton Sea’s natural, agricultural, and municipal water inflows to maximize bird and fish habitat and minimize fine-particle air pollution will allow California to protect regional health, ecological wealth and a stable water supply.

The Salton Sea stretches for 35 miles between the Coachella and Imperial valleys.

The following hearings have been scheduled:

August 18, 2016 Salton Sea – Public Workshop San Diego
