DUST BUSTER

A remote California lake, turned into a near wasteland by a long-ago water grab, is reconstructed on the strength of an unusual cooperative effort. Among the beneficiaries: thousands of migrating birds.

Owens Lake, at the base of the Inyo Mountains, covers nearly 100 square miles. The lakebed is crisscrossed by a grid of driveable dikes that hide hundreds of miles of pipeline.
