Owens Lake Dust Mitigation Project, Phase 7A
During Phase 7A of the Owens Lake Dust Mitigation Program, a majority of the work completed included the implementation of shallow flooding, hybrid vegetation and irrigation, and gravel techniques to address dust over a total area of 6.1 square miles. New visitor access features were also constructed on the site for the first time. Related work included the construction of pedestrian turnouts, habitat viewing areas and approximately 2 miles of pedestrian raised walkways. The 3 year phase was completed October 2016.
