Governor signs bill and takes other actions to protect the Salton Sea

Gov. Jerry Brown Friday signed an important bill (Assembly Bill 1095) that will help accellerate projects to benefit the Salton Sea, and also took a number of executive actions aimed to protect Salton Sea habitat and neighboring communities. The Salton Sea is one of the most important places for birds in California and the Pacific Flyway. As the waters of the Salton Sea recede due to drought and reduced water allocations, bird habitat is becoming increasingly affected. Dust left behind is also creating a massive public health hazard for the Imperial Valley.
