The battle of Point Buckler Island isn’t over yet

Estuary News

In January the Bay Conservation and Development Commission and the San Francisco Bay Regional Water Quality Control Board appealed decisions by a Solano County Superior Court Judge voiding $3.6 million in fines and cleanup and restoration requirements that the agencies imposed on the island’s owner ... Erica Maharg of Baykeeper, which provided testimony at the agencies’ administrative hearings, said the nonprofit was “extremely disappointed and shocked by the trial court decision.” Maharg added: “Just because Mr. Sweeney owns the island, he does not have the right to ignore laws that all other property owners have to follow.” The Regional Board’s George Kostyrko says the agency “will pursue any action available to it to make sure the damage is remedied.”
