The Discovery Bay Community Foundation (DBCF) will host a town hall meeting on Feb 25th in the Discovery Bay Elementary gym at 6:30 to discuss where and when the Department of Boating and Waterways (DBW) will be treating the aquatic weeds in 2015. Also in attendance will be the USDA and the Contra Costa Agriculture Dept. to share their perspective on the present and the future of the delta.
Jim Mattison and the DBCF are in touch with the DBW just about every week and they realize how the aquatic weeds have really impacted the Discovery Bay community and way of Life. The good news is everyone from the county to our assemblyman Jim Frazier is working hard to acquire more funds through the state budget and other resources to battle our common enemy and they have had success in doing so.
In addition to the weed discussion, there will be 15 minutes time for information to be presented by Michael Brodsky, STCDA, on the 3 Delta Dams being proposed by the Department of Water Resources (DWR) NOTE: The DWR is not the same group as the DBW representatives who will be attending the meeting. The DBW people at the meeting are trying to help us with our weed problem.
The comment period on the 3 Delta Dams (including one on False River just west of Franks Tract) has been extended into early May but everyone is being encouraged to get their comments in ASAP. Reminders about where to send in comments is on the STCDA website http://www.NoDeltaGates.com and will be passed out at the meeting.
The Town Hall meeting will start at 6:30 and the doors will open at 6:00. For more community information go to www.dbcf.info See you all on the 25th.
