The first in a series of public outreach meetings concerning Salton Sea revitalization will be held this Saturday.

The meeting will be held at 1 p.m. over Zoom and is the first of many discussing the North Lake Pilot Demonstration Project, a $19.25 million joint project between California, Riverside County and the Salton Sea Authority, according to the office of county Supervisor Manuel Perez.

The project is aimed at building an approximately 156-acre marina near the North Shore Beach to restore and manage habitats for fish, birds and wildlife. It will also control dust and revitalize the northern end of the Salton Sea, officials hope.

“The North Lake Pilot Demonstration Project is an important habitat and dust suppression project and a major investment in state funding to revitalize the northern end of the Salton Sea as well as the community of North Shore,” Perez said.

“I am looking forward to launching outreach and community engagement workshops as we get closer to starting this project that will benefit our region, the Salton Sea as a whole, and the residents who live in the area around the Salton Sea,” he added.

The meeting will teach members of the public more about the project and provide time for community members to ask questions and provide comment. Spanish interpretation will be provided.
