In 2018, the Water Foundation commissioned a study to provide an expert, unbiased recommendation about Salton Sea governance and management to decision makers and stakeholders. An advisory committee guided the study’s design and implementation. The final study was written by Economic & Planning Systems Inc (EPS). Together, the advisors and authors interviewed more than 25 stakeholders from water agencies, state regulators, citizen groups, environmental interests, and subject matter experts.

The Water Foundation is deeply appreciative of all who contributed to this effort. We hope that this product can help and inform any future  Salton Sea discussions for the people, economy, and environment of the region.
