The Red Hill Bay Restoration Project started today at the Salton Sea marking the beginning of the first large-scale dust mitigation venture in the area.

The project will cover 420 acres of dust with water creating geothermal energy access corridors and well pads for future renewable energy development. The project model will serve as a valuable blue-print for future restorations projects.

The Red Hill Bay project was a collaborative effort between Sens. Boxer and Dianne Feinstein, Congressman Juan Vargas, state Sen. Ben Hueso, Assembly member Eduardo Garcia, Supervisor John Benoit, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the Imperial Irrigation District (IID), the State of California, and the Salton Sea Authority.
