Terrific op-ed in Water Deeply from Allison Harvey Turner Allison Harvey Turner, of the S.D. Bechtel Jr. Foundation, and Barry Gold, of the Walton Family Foundation, about the State of California's recent progress addressing the environmental and public health crises at the Salton Sea:
"At the Salton Sea, the state has the opportunity to demonstrate its commitment to supporting human health, a resilient environment, a strong economy and a sustainable water strategy for Southern California. Now, promising plans on paper must turn into critical progress on the ground. We are closer than ever to solving the Salton Sea crisis. This is the time for diligence and dedication to make it happen."
Earlier this month, Audubon California led a group of chapter leaders to offer a firsthand look at the situation at the Salton Sea. We also co-hosted a community event to raise awareness about the developing environmental and public health crises.
