I didn't know that this used to be the biggest lake entirely within California.

It's a stupid article. Not sure what is up with the scare tactic crap, but that lake has been an ecological disaster from day one. It just was never meant to be. And everything this article has portrayed as recent developments is totally irresponsible and has been the norm for decades.

I would have to agree. I would camp with my family and friends out at Borrego springs somewhat near that area when I lived in SoCal. The last time was probably 15 years ago and this was very much the case at that time as well. Very poor communities, dead fish and a nice ripe smell.

They are just tugging at heartstrings to play water politics. Not that I am happy to see more of the water going to SD though!

Let me see, Southern California is draining Mono Lake, The Colorado River, and Northern California. Maybe they could do a bake sale and raise enough funds from all of those liberal Hollywood types and build a pipeline and pump sea water to the lake. They could also hire some of the folks at Homeless Depot to help out.........Jetspray

Im just hoping that between the drought and fracking it causes that major quake I always heard about growing up that will collapse SoCal into the ocean
