Discovery Bay got “On the Bus”


The Discovery Bay’s “Get On the Bus” event filled the bus plus got great TV coverage – thanks to Melinda Meza and KCRA Sacramento Channel 3 for showing up at both Discovery Bay and Sacramento! Amanda Dove and her kids did a great job on camera. See more from KCRA TV.

The DWR rep Nancy Vogel who was also interviewed by KCRA gave the party line that the BDCP is going to “restore the habitat” even though WE all know the main thing fish need is fresh water and that is what the BDCP plan will be removing.

The construction project, tunnel muck, and lack of fresh water will seriously impact all Delta communities and Delta farmers. Let alone the poor farmers who’s farms are being threatened to be taken away by eminent domain.

It was great to see Discovery Bay getting notice on TV because for us, like the rest of the people living in the Delta area, it’s about our way of life on the Delta.

  1. Excellent showing from Discovery Bay! Great photo from Richard inside the meeting!

  2. The last 3 hours of the public meeting of the BDCP/Delta Tunnels was very eye opening! The people of the Delta–fishing, farming, working, living, boating–are not getting the whole picture. Stay informed.
