Bruce Wilcox, environmental project manager at Imperial Irrigation Dis-trict, talks about a section of Salton Sea near Red Marina Hill (background at right) that will be restored to a habitat environment. Wilcox said the plan will help with dust mitigation, provide a habitat for bird species and to clean drain water before discharging them to Salton Sea.

While the petition has not been approved by the State Water Resources Control Board, it is effectively on hold.
