Document Description
CDFW has executed Lake and Streambed Alteration Agreement No. 1600-2016-0141-R6, pursuant to section 1602 of the Fish and Game Code to the project applicant, DWR. Project is limited to the construction of three pond units (East New, West New, and Far West New) that will impound saline water at a shallow depth within the project site, the development of associated water delivery systems, and associated electrical power infrastructure development to provide power for the water pumps. the project will restore piscivorous bird habitat within an area of currently exposed and dry playa area to offset the loss of habitat of this type that is occurring as the Salton Sea recedes and concurrently increases in salinity.
