According to the Salton Sea Authority's recent press release, The Salton Sea Authority has a new and improved website, http://saltonseaauthority.org/, and it is now live.

Following a competitive RFP Process, the Salton Sea Authority selected a local Riverside web development company called System Go IT (http://www.systemgoit.com/) to overhaul the existing site, in a project initiated late last fall to modernize the Salton Sea Authority platform and outreach efforts.

The new website aims to create a straight-forward information and interaction hub that will be easier for members to use on both desktop and mobile devices, provide more photos and graphic elements, streamline content, resources and information, and make it easier to find and effectively understand the issues and what is being done at the Salton Sea. “The SSA places a high value on professional communication that involves and educates the public in a clear, concise, and easy to understand format,” said Phillip Johnson, Assistant Executive Director of the Salton Sea Authority (SSA). “The redesign of the SSA website mirrors the positive momentum that is happening at the Salton Sea, and seeks to expand upon that momentum.

New website features include:

“Be Heard” section in which viewers can share their thoughts, concerns and questions about progress at the Salton Sea.

“Salton Sea Newsletter” that website visitors can request in order to receive quarterly updates on progress at the Sea — especially the Salton Sea Management Program; coordination of policy and funding needs at the local, state and federal levels; plus public events involving the Sea.

“Interactive maps” that show land ownership, the effects of massive air quality impacts, as well as renewable energy resources and facilities at the Salton Sea.
