The Salton Sea is the largest body of water in California, home to the second most diverse group of birds in America and it exists by accident.
Another great video on the Salton Sea: https://youtu.be/otIU6Py4K_A

That's the problem with today's America, nothing matters except money. So short sighted.

The agriculture runoff has posioned the shores around the lake. The dust from exposed areas kicks up and now those pesricides spray across the desert. Because the area no longer has yearly floods, no new water is getting in. The only hope to clear the entire area is to finish digging the channel to the BAJA sea and allow sea water to flood, flush, and refill the area.

no dude , in the absence of human interference things tend to return to a natural balance, they don't fall apart.
The real problem is people like you who believe that our job is to "fix" nature.

The time for caring was perhaps a long time ago. Kind of thing one might expect to hear of third world countries. Now might be a better time to desalinate before empting the lake if anything is ever going to be grown there. Someone has to have the will. See where the profit lies.

We're supposed to be the wardens of that planet. But shitheadism happened.

Why not build Desalinization plants on the shore or filter the runoff , empty the salt onto a pile and reopen the resorts to pay for it. Could help make more rain in the area or change the local climate for the better

put plants there plant takes in the CO2 from the volcanic activity so that there's more oxygen,
add more fresh water to dilute the salty water,
add more oxygen to the water,
add more sea-life to water,

I'm confused. Are you saying that people seeing no point in spending billions on completing an irrigation system, to rebuild a resort, in the middle of a desert, that shouldn't be there anyway, shows a lack of caring?

Wouldn’t the largest body of water in California be the pacific ocean
