$2 Million Dollar Grant Funds Salton Sea Web Site

The University of Redlands will operate a federally funded information Web site and database to help officials solve the problems threatening the Salton Sea. California's largest lake "is an ecosystem in collapse," said Timothy Krantz, project manager for the Salton Sea Database Program and assistant professor of environmental studies. "If nothing is done to address the problems, the Salton Sea could be a dead sea in about 15 years."

The Salton Sea Database Program is funded by a $2 million grant administered through the Environmental Protection Agency.

The University of Redlands is a liberal arts university with a growing reputation in the field of environmental management, particularly through the use of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) software. A leading developer of GIS is Environmental Systems Research Institute (ESRI), a company based in the city of Redlands, which will provide technical support for the project.

Two years ago, university undergraduate students collaborated with the federal government and private mining companies to determine areas of conflict between environmental and mining interests in the San Bernardino National Forest. "Our job is to collect the data, organize and analyze it, and then re-distribute it to the people making the decisions. We are uniquely qualified to undertake this task because we have no stake in the outcome," said Krantz, who has worked on other major wetlands restoration projects as an environmental consultant over the past 20 years.

Jerry Lewis (R-Redlands) introduced legislation that funded the database program. The bill received bipartisan support, including from the four other House representatives from the Salton Sea area: George Brown (D-San Bernardino), Ken Calvert (R-Riverside), Duncan Hunter (R-El Cajon) and the late Sonny Bono (R-Palm Springs).

"We are beginning a very exciting and environmentally challenging project that
