Salton Sea Water Import
We've run out of time... While we've been having decades of meetings, the Salton Sea has been looking for enough water to achieve any, large-scale sustainable restoration initiatives. Although some relatively small projects are making progress, the Sea is drying up.
Water inflows have been diverted to coastal cities. The Salton Sea region needs a sustainable water source to survive, and thrive.
Let's finish the Coyote Canal from the Sea of Cortez, Pacific Ocean, downhill to the Salton Sea.
· Let's get the State of California and Imperial County cities educated, encourage them to pass support resolutions for water import, and complete the engineering, ASAP. Adding water compliments existing wetland restoration projects.
Benefits of adding water:
· No dust
· Economic growth
· Sustainable shoreline
· Desal however much you want
· Power generation
· Blue water instead of red
· No dust
Benefits of not adding water:
· Consulting contract$ for perpetual mitigation, far pricier than Owen$ Lake.

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.
