Notes

Abstract: The Salton Sea is the largest lake, on a surface area basis, in California. Its continued health as an avian sanctuary and recreation and fishery resource depends upon stabilizing and ultimately reducing the levels of salinity and key pollutants, primarily selenium and the nutrients phosphorous and nitrogen. Simply letting the Sea evaporate away is not an option as its toxic sediments would be picked up by the wind as blowing dust, and become a health hazard to southern Californians. Therefore, we propose to examine first, the sources and harmful effects of the key pollutants, and second, possible alternatives to reduce the levels of these pollutants.
