Document Description
The preferred alternative/least environmentally damaging practicable alternative/proposed project (Alternative 3 in the Draft EIS/EIR) would create approximately 3,770 acres of shallow ponds, contained within low berms, on either side of the New River at elevations less than -228 feet mean sea level. The ponds would be supplies with a combinator of brackish and saline water. This water would be pumped from the New River and Salton Sea, respectively, and blended to maintain an appropriate salinity range.
