Why is the salton sea getting so salty?



  1. 0 Votes

    The salinity levels of the Salton Sea are rising for a couple of reasons. First, variations in agricultural runoff are increasing the salinity. Also, the inflow that feeds the Salton is of a relatively high salinity as well–and there is a sincere lack of outflow. So more salty runoff and inflow water are flowing into the body of water with no exits–thus making it a saltier body of water.
