Water Import
For the Southwest and the Salton Sea

We've run out of time; and this is not just about Salton Sea. This is water resource sustainability for future generations all up and down the Colorado River. Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, Nevada, Arizona, California and Mexico all rely on one waining river. We're losing elevation in Lake Powell and Lake Mead. Our wells are getting deeper. The Salton Sea is drying up, along with water for our people and the environment. 

Water inflows have been diverted to coastal cities. The Salton Sea region and entire Southwest needs a sustainable water source to survive, and thrive. Let's ensure water resource sustainability for future generations, and import water from the ocean.

Adding water compliments all restoration initiatives and life. Let's strive to keep the most things alive!

Long Term Benefits of adding water:

Drinking Water

Crop Water


No dust

Sustainable shorelines

The ability to desalinate unlimited water resources.

Water Importation Project Proposals

Please review and share these important proposals. This outreach effort has been a collaboration between The Salton Sea Coalition, The EcoMedia Compass, and volunteers. Opportunities to attain long-term Salton Sea restoration including the Perimeter Lake and North Lake concepts work best with enough water for future generations. Much more public support is needed to evaluate, fund, design and build a full project. Let's envision a future grand enough to believe in, a future beautiful enough to thrive in, and water for our kids and great-grand pelicans.
