California Governor Kickstarts Salton Sea Restoration

“Gov. Jerry Brown announced plans Friday for the state to back larger projects to control dust and construct wetlands along the receding shores of the Salton Sea.

In response to recommendations made by the newly formed Salton Sea Task Force, the state plans to restore between 9,000 and 12,000 acres of shoreline habitat by 2020 using already-available state funds.

Starting in 2020, the state will then begin to restore an additional 18,000 to 25,000 acres of exposed shoreline, although an end date for this stage of restoration has yet to be set.”
