The Tribe and the Conservancy are proposing to rehabilitate long exposed Salton Sea playa on TMDCI reservation lands which has reverted to a status of degraded salty soil (combo of clay, silty clay and silty clay loam) containing sparse to dense patches of saltbush, pickle-weed and invasive tamarisk. The TMDCI proposes to mitigate that increased risk of unhealthy air for its tribal members as well as residents in the area through the establishment and propagation of native desert trees and shrubs on the exposed playa as the Sea continues to recede. The tribe envisions the construction of rain harvest basins with biodegradable containers that sustain 1 gallon trees and provide the capability of holding 7 gallons of water.
