"Officials said the geothermal development could be worth at least $3 billion over 30 years to help pay for the sea's revival."
"The proposal also calls for the construction of a pipeline to bring desalinated water from the Sea of Cortez and imposing a surcharge on Hoover Dam power used by Southern California agencies to move water."
The pipeline to the Ocean has been one of the solutions put forth over 25 years ago. Now the question of how it would be funded seems to be in place. One step farther along in an actual remedy for the Salton Sea. With geothermal resources at the south end of the Sea and a source of sea water into the sink, one could also use the area as a storage lake for salt water to be desalinated and shipped to areas West, San Diego, LA County and the many cities within those boundaries. You have the land, available on the South end of the Salton Sink to build an extreme desalination plant and the power source to run it.
