Forty four years of meetings and 3 efforts to save the Salton Sea has given me a giant incite of the future of this area.
Lookie lou's and speculators that say ,"Oh!, they will save the sea" should get real especially at this time.I have news for them

Only a combined effort will help stop the insanity of drying up the middle part of the Salton Sea.
This is an area of 38 by 17 miles wide.
Habitat is being built at the East and West ends of the sea only. After 2017, if no viable project to save the Salton Sea is in place and accepted by all, tail water into it will be curtailed and be sent to the coast.
Since only tail water from farmers fields created the Salton Sea, remember that those on the coast see it as "wasted" fresh water. Believe me if we don't stand up now they will get the water and the gift they leave us is a vast barren desert 38 by 17 miles wide. This will leave us with a mico-climate of Death Valley.
Time for all of you wake up.
See you each Saturday, 10 am until 2 pm at the West Shores Chamber of the Salton Sea.
Come on in and tell me what you know.

Norm,
You are absolutely right!
San Deigo has the ocean right next to them but they don't want to spend the money to convert salt water to fresh -- easier to take our water and pay the growers for their runoff. Which ultimately is least costly?
I think everyone around this Sea is willing to sacrafice to a point in order to save it. San Diego looks at the Sea as a lost cause (because they don't live here) and they are willing to take whatever they can get to continue their current lifestyle (i.e. golf courses, watering their lawns, washing down their driveways, and not spendng the money to convert ocean water to fresh).
The people who enjoy life at the Salton Sea must (somehow) fight San Diego for what rightfully belongs to the residents who live here at the Salton Sea (which is NOT poluted)and force them to face the fact thay THEY need to change their lifestyle in order to support their desires!!!!
The residents around the Salton Sea have changed their immediate environment by going completely to desert landscape, lowering water usage, and even adding fresh water to the Sea itself.
WHAT HAS SAN DIEGO DONE? Continue to construct golf courses, wash their dirveways with their hoses, and etc.?????????
Who is right in this senerio??
The water being diverted to San Diego rightfully belongs to the largest body of water in the state of California AND THE ONLY SEA WITHIN THE UNITED STATES -- who else can boast that?
We won't much longer if San Diego has it's way!
