Document Description
This project is a modest revision of a previously approved project in the now dry Red Hill Bay area of the Salton Sea, where a series of low earthen berms will be constructed to create water impoundments in two large cells. The impoundments will contain approx. 2 or 3 feet of water and contain loafing islands, snags and other habitat enhancements. The resulting brackish shallow water habitat will benefit local and migratory bird species as well as the federally listed, endangered native desert pupfish. This modification will allow for the use of underground pipelines to deliver water to the project site as opposed to the open channel, gravity fed design of the original project.
