Californians approve bond measure that will provide $200 million for Salton Sea

A total of $200 million for Salton Sea projects is rolled into the statewide ballot measure, which will also provide money for a variety of water projects, state and local parks, and wildlife conservation programs.

The $200 million for Salton Sea-related projects will include $170 million for the California Natural Resources Agency to pay for work on the state’s plan, plus $30 million for a local agency, the Salton Sea Authority, to support “projects that improve air quality and habitat benefits” and that implement the state’s plan.
