Up until 1905 the Salton Sea basin was a vast dry lake which had held water several times in the past thousand years. In 1905 after an abnormally heavy winter season of rainfall and then snowmelt the man made Imperial Valley dike was breached. The flow from the Colorado River took nearly two years to be controlled. The result was todays Salton Sea.

Fish Die Offs - Tilapia at the Salton Sea
The Salton Sea has been in decline for years. Large scale fish die offs have become annual summer events since the late nineties. The major causes are believed to be the ever increasing salinity pollution from Mexico via the New River and agricultural runoff from the surrounding farmland on the southern end of the Sea. The pollutants include huge quantities of raw sewage industrial waste farm fertilizers and pesticides.
