California Natural Resources Agency (CNRA), California Department of Water Resources (DWR), California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) | March 25th, 2024

Significant, measurable progress continued at the Salton Sea (Sea) over the last year. The largest restoration project in the Sea’s history neared completion, suppressing dust and restoring habitat across thousands of acres at the south end of the Sea. In other areas along the Sea, hundreds of acres now host native vegetation recently planted to suppress dust over coming decades. These plants have taken root, are growing and are beginning to serve their purpose. This year also witnessed the first major investment by federal agencies to stabilize the Sea; the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation (Reclamation) granted $70 million to accelerate local restoration projects.
