I saw the Channel 7 newscast tonight at 6 PM. The Bethel Island municipal district’s manager was quoted complaining about the economic impact the False River Dam would cause to Bethel Island. BI is being taken off-the-map since now the heavy boat traffic from the west (Benicia, Pittsburg, Antioch) to the south Delta (Mildred Island, Discovery Bay) will bypass Bethel Island. It is disastrous for them.
UNFORTUNATELY, Channel 7’s concluding line was “Some win, some lose. All for a greater good.”
So the conclusion of the news station was the “greater good” was to get more water to the CV farmers!
