State agencies are continuing a series of community meetings to provide updates and engage residents in developing projects to reduce dust from exposed lakebed around the Salton Sea. Two community meetings were held in December in Mecca and Salton City.
The purpose of the meetings is to get community input on a draft Dust Suppression Action Plan that will identify and prioritize approximately 9,000 acres of dust suppression projects at locations around the Sea based on soil emissivity, prevailing wind patterns, and threat to populated areas. The draft plan will be available prior to the community meetings.
Spanish translation will be provided.
Materials for the meeting will be available by mid-February on the California Natural Resources Agency’s Salton Sea webpage.
