The ESRCD is a partner in the CV SALTS program. The Central Valley Salinity Alternatives for Long Term Sustainability is a collective program formed in 2006 to develop and implement a plan for the management of salts and nutrients in the Central Valley’s water and soil. Rising salt levels pose a threat to productive agriculture, safe drinking water, and wildlife. In order to better tackle the complex problem of salinity in our valley, CV SALTS consists of a diverse collaboration between agricultural and industrial producers, regulatory and government agencies, and cities. The goals of the CV SALTS program is to protect and sustain the Central Valley’s agriculture, economy, and water supply while protecting the environment. Learn more here.
