Riverside County and state leaders are looking for public opinion in addressing issues plaguing the Salton Sea.
Two public meetings will be held virtually this week to introduce the team members leading the Salton Sea Management Program, to hear from the experts studying the proposals to bring more water into the lake, and to learn about the creation of the long-range plan. State leaders also want to hear about your experiences at the Salton Sea and your opinions on the fix to these tough issues.
The first will be on Tuesday, August 31 from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
On Thursday, September 2, another meeting will be held online from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
You can join in either through Zoom https://ca-water-gov.zoom.us/j/86357786266, Facebook Live (in Spanish only) on the "Salton Sea COEE" page, or you can teleconference in.
That number is (888) 278-0296, access code: 596019.

The state is now in its fourth year of its ten year Salton Sea Management Plan, aimed at improving conditions there by creating 30,000 acres of habitat and dust suppression projects around the lake. At last check, the state had completed approximately 800 acres.
