Salton Sea Coastline

Description: If you noticed the Salton Sea being mentioned in the last few posts, here it is!

It has an interesting backstory worth the read. Basically humans screwed up while trying to irrigate the area for farming near the turn of the 1900s and Boom, now we have a lake.

But a lake with no outflow, like the Dead Sea is bound to have problems. And with plenty of agriculture around it, the sea, as a tourist destination, has become something of an ignored oasis.

The state of California has started a project to improve conditions and monitor the lake to see what can be done to improve health around the lake.
