San Francisco Bay is one of two coastal salt works operations in the entire United States. The bay is ideal because of its long, shallow topography of the Bay's bottom, the clay soils, and the Mediterranean climate.
The Newark facility has salt intake ponds. The facility also has evaporation ponds. About 9,200 acres of the bay has evaporation ponds.
