The Salton Sea is an inland sink in a low lying desert area south and east of Los Angeles, California. The 230,000 acre sea is threatened with rapidly rising salinity levels which, if uncontrolled, are expected to eliminate the currently valuable sport fishery within the next decade. Studies were conducted in the Salton Sea area, to determine the present water quality of the Salton Sea, its tributaries and major waste discharges in the basin. Water quality studies emphasized the nutrient and biological aspects of the eutrophic Salton Sea but also included some work on mineral salts, sediments and bacteriological indicators.
