“The Salton Sea, a vast saltwater lake in remote southeastern California providing crucial habitat for birds and wildlife, is quickly approaching a tipping point. Yet several recent actions give hope the lake could turn a corner in the near future.
Just yesterday, California announced the appointment of Bruce Wilcox, a very knowledgeable and action-oriented leader, to the newly-created position of assistant secretary for Salton Sea policy at the California Natural Resources Agency. Last year, California voters approved a massive water bond with a sizeable chunk of money that could be directed toward Salton Sea activities. And, consensus is beginning to emerge over short- and medium-term projects at the declining Salton Sea.”
