"Revitalizing the Salton Sea"
Welcome to the official website of the Salton Sea Authority.
The Salton Sea Authority is a Joint Powers Authority (JPA) responsible for overseeing the comprehensive restoration of the Salton Sea.
Revitalizing the environment and economy of the Sea requires an integrated approach to recognizing old problems as potential new solutions, and to delivering multiple benefits with thoughtful strategies that integrate economic opportunity and environmental stability. The Salton Sea Authority is aggressively pursuing projects that can be expanded from near term to long term actions.
Under the authority of the state legislature (AB 71), and in cooperation with the California Natural Resources Agency, the Salton Sea Authority has produced a Financial Feasibility Action Plan. The FFAP is a living document providing a blueprint to create a smaller but sustainable sea in a manner that is realistic, feasible, affordable, and achievable.
