  • California`s Largest Lake threatened by Urban Water Transfer

    Once-bustling marinas on shallow water in California's largest lake a few years ago are bone-dry. Carcasses of oxygen-starved tilapia lie on desolate shores. Flocks of eared grebes and shoreline birds bob up and down to feast on marine life. An air of decline and strange beauty permeates the Salton Sea: The lake is shrinking - and on the verge of getting much smaller as more water goes to coastal ...
