A shoreline of fish bones line #RedHillBay ... "65 to 70 thousand acres are gonna be exposed by the time the transfer is done in 2047." - Bruce Wilcox.
Wilcox is referring to the lake bed or "playa" of the #SaltonSea which is covered in harmful salt and toxins that can cause respiratory illnesses and cancer. In 30 years, it is estimated there will be 100 tons of fine dust emitted into the air daily. The desert winds are so strong, this dust can carry to #LosAngeles #SanBernardino #Mexico and beyond. With more than 2/3 of the vegetables consumed in the #UnitedStates during the winter months, grown in the most affected region, #ImperialCounty , it is more than evident something must be done and soon. Unless of course you like selenium and iron with your carrots... The responsibility of the state to mitigate water into the Sea ends at the start of 2018 (the transfer Wilcox references). Roughly 26 additional sq miles of playa will be exposed in that year alone... Salton Sea documentary in post. Excited for its spring release. #documentary #drought #canon #dslr #70d #photography #nofilter

While visiting the Salton Sea, I stumbled across many pools of terracota ️red waters.
-
Scientists believe that the intense heat of the 🏜desert ️sun combined with the nutrient-rich agricultural runoff fuels blooms of micro-organisms.
-
The beaches of the Salton Sea are made up of dried salt, fish skeletons, & barnacles. Certainly not a 📬postcard view to many, but an interesting sight nonetheless.

dntuason Standing along California State Route 111, I had this view of an oasis next to the Salton Sea with snow-capped Mount San Gorgonio in the background.

The Salton Sea is the largest lake in California and it is saltier than the Pacific Ocean, but did you know it was created by mistake?

For thousands of years, the Colorado River flowed into and out of the Imperial Valley. Depending on river flows, the Salton Basin had either a freshwater lake, an increasingly saline lake, or a dry desert basin. The cycle of filling has been about every 400-500 years, and the latest natural cycle is believed to have occurred during the 17th century.

The lake as we know it today was a mistake that was caused by the engineers of the California Development Company in 1905. Irrigation canals were dug from the Colorado River into the valley, but a specific cut was too deep and accidentally resulted in the river flowing unchecked into the Salton Basin for two years.
