Costa Sheriff's Marine Patrol
Calfed, a federal-state program in charge of managing the Delta, is on the verge of financial insolvency, adding to the environmental problems and making it more difficult to secure funding for projects like this.
For more than 10 years, local agencies have been trying to secure funding for a cleanup project of this kind, while the debris continued to sit, polluting the waterways.
On Wednesday, CNET rode along with the Contra Costa Sheriff's Marine Patrol and Sgt. Doug Powell to take a look at the problem and the solutions that are finally being put in place to clean up one of California's most important natural resources.
