Take the leftover "briney water" from Poseidon desalinization plant and pump it near the Salton sea into 4 managed pools.  Use natural solar/thermal to process the water into steam and leftover minerals/brine salt etc.  Mine the water, steam filter clean water and pump that to the Salton sea.  Set up a system and determine the max level of the Salton Sea and set up a reservoir water management system to control overflow (redirect via solar powered pumping excess water to nearby farms/cities).

We need all modern buildings to have decent cisterns.  We need all water piping systems checked for leaks at least 1-2 times per year (monitor and improve water infrastructure).  Golf Courses and parks/schools can use recycled/grey water.  Use recycled water for pools (and mandate inspections every 3-5 years) and landscaping.  California can Innovate - not be afraid of the future.

There needs to be a trade/share agreement connection between YOUTUBE (Google, Inc) and Facebook (10% owned by Microsoft). AD revenue sharing with Original Content Creator should be mandatory.  Or a pulldown/redirect to original posting space (Youtube, Vimeo, webspace).

This impending environmental disaster could devastate 90% of our winter fruits and vegetables and also risk the lives of local residents and wildlife.

There are possibilities to secure long term fixes.  Conservation of fresh water, check water piping (fix leaky water pipe infrastructure), Fix/replace faucets, incentives to upgrade to modern appliances (dishwasher, washer, using heat-on-demand copper piping vs old tech water heaters) and upgrade/replace old toilets and showerheads.  That being said - we can use nearby open land to provide solar and thermal heated water processing and feed 1/2 the fresh water to the Salton sea and 1/2 water to be sold to local cities/farms.  Then we improve the recycling of water and use the grey water on updated golf courses, city parks, school parks etc.  Drought resistant plants, trees and smart watering with modern sprinklers that are computer controlled.  WaterX will be coming out with best practices from around the USA and around the world.  DO NOT USE ARTIFICIAL TURF - it is bad regarding Greenhouse GASES and is unhealthy compared to redoing your landscaping to less lawn and more natural plants/trees.  There are a lot of innovations out there.  WE CAN BRING THEM together in CALIFORNIA - Innovate do not "fearigate".  Golden State has open, creative and intelligent minds and people that care about the health of our surroundings.  We can do it smartly.

+Yededaiyah Paltiel Salt in water is not particulate matter which can be filtered out, it is dissolved ionic molecules (infinitely smaller than sand). Evaporation process works, but the yield is low. A swimming pool evaporates about 1/4 inch per day. An olympic sized evaporation pond might give a 100 gallons.

It's terrifyingly easy for anyone to buy your private info. Hundreds of websites exists with your info for sale.

I don't like the idea of people being able to getting info other then what's already in say the phone book, but at the same time I've used these site to get info so I could contact my half bro who's mom won't let me see him. They do work and do have a lot of info on them
