What about Bethel Island?


Congratulations to the North Delta C.A.R.E.S. community action group led by Anna Swensen and Barbara Daly and its allies who caused the DWR to abandoned their plan to put two of the three water barriers (dams) across North Delta sloughs and is now only going to use just one. They have abandoned barriers across lower Steamboat Slough and Miner Slough locations–a great victory for the fish and farmers in the North Delta.

HOWEVER, what about the rancher on Bradford Island and the entire community of Bethel Island, working to continue their recent economic recovery? BI is finally able to move ahead on their big project where the levee was breeched years ago (on purpose) to build homes on the water to support BI’s economy. The BI manager said the False River Dam is like condemning the town of Bethel Island.

The Central Valley corporate farmers win – the False River Dam is being installed.
