Document Description
The SCH Project would construct habitat configured in a series of interconnected shallow ponds at either the north or south ends of the Salton Sea, or in both areas. The Project size at total build-out is currently expected to be approximately 2,400 acres, which may be constructed over a period of several years. The actual total Project size may vary, and SCH ponds would vary in size. The Project's ponds would be created by constructing dikes below the elevation of -228' msl using material excavated from the Sea bed. Rivers would provide the primary source of water for the ponds. The SCH would be designed to manage salinity at varying ranges to maximize biological productivity and minimize adverse effects from water quality.
