What news is more welcome than good news about the environment?
On October 25, 2015, a day with a 5.6 foot high tide just before noon, the Sonoma Land Trust breached a levee along the San Pablo Bay near Sears Point.
For 140 years that levee had diked off about 1,000 acres of tidal marshland.
That day water from the San Pablo Bay estuary rushed back over those 1,000 acres.
The video below shows the very moment of the breach. This video gives me a thrill of joy.
