Overview

The Salton Sea is California’s largest lake. As the Salton Sea shrinks for a variety of reasons, air quality in Riverside, Imperial, and surrounding counties suffers, because particulates small enough to be dangerous to human health are picked up by the wind from the exposed lakebed.

The State’s 10-year Management Plan details the number of acres of lakebed expected to face exposure each year from 2018 through 2028, the number of acres to be covered through proposed construction efforts, and the projected annual costs of the effort. The State’s Plan describes the first phase of the Salton Sea Management Program created under the Governor’s direction. The Plan targets areas near the New and Alamo rivers carry farm drainage into the southern end of the Salton Sea.

 The State’s many partners in this effort include the Salton Sea Authority, Imperial County, the Imperial Irrigation District, the South Coast Air Quality Management District, the Water Transfers Joint Powers Authority, the Audubon Society, Coachella Valley Water District, San Diego County Water Authority and the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation.
