(Salton Sea awareness)…It is a problem.
Not many in or out of Imperial County understand the problems facing the dieing Sea. There is an effort to change that. A representative from a group called Eco-Media Conference told the Board of Supervisors they were planning a major informational event. It will be held in Riverside County and will include expert speakers discussing the problems facing the Salton Sea and efforts that could save the Sea. It will be an all day event that will include music and other entertainment. The representative indicated major media outlets have expressed an interest in reporting on the event. They asked the Board of Supervisor for support and participation in the awareness event. The Supervisors were very supportive. The event will be held April 26th, and at least three County Supervisors committed to attend. More details of the event will be released as they are finalized.
