Salton Seasaw Update

Readers of the Salton Seasaw:

We wanted to take a few minutes of your time to thank you for the support and comments regarding our online publication. Since we rolled out the Salton Seasaw a few months ago we have strived to publish compelling and informative content on the Salton Sea and the politics that is now so wrapped up in its future. We are the first to admit there are numerous issues facing the lake and its neighboring communities in the Imperial and Coachella valleys, not to mention those in northern Baja California, Eastern Arizona and greater Southern California.

We also wanted to make some important announcements regarding the Salton Seasaw. First, we will be moving to a slightly different format. In the coming weeks, we will begin to distribute information as a digest, while retaining our current curated format. This means that roughly once a month, we distribute a compilation of articles having to do with the Salton Sea (California’s largest lake), the Colorado River and the Drought Contingency Plan. Additionally, we will continue distribution of original content, most of which will be written by guest authors, such as our previous post from IID Director Jim Hanks.

We are also in the process of developing an editorial board that will help guide the decisions we make to ensure that quality information is distributed by our group. This group will have extensive experience in dealing with the Salton Sea, whether from a media, technical, legal or political perspective.

If you are so inclined, please visit our blog at and sign up to be notified by email when we post new content on the site.
And finally, if you would like to submit content for consideration, either news, links to articles in the press, press releases or original articles please send an email to

We, the Salton Sea and the residents of the Imperial and Coachella valleys thank you for being a reader of the Salton Seasaw.

AR, Publisher
