"California Commits To Timetable For Salton Sea Projects"

"California’s top water regulators adopted an agreement that commits the state to following through on plans of building wetlands and controlling dust around the shrinking Salton Sea over the next 10 years.

The order approved Tuesday by the State Water Resources Control Board sets targets for state agencies in building thousands of acres of ponds, wetlands and other dust-control projects around the lake.

The agreement is based on California’s 10-year plan for the lake, which Gov. Jerry Brown’s administration released in March. So far, most of the funding hasn’t been secured for the $383 million plan."
