Dubos Point is surrounded by new housing in this August 2003 photo. Even the garter snakes (see photo of dried carcass) are being driven out for new developments near floodable bay shoreline.

And the mosquito breeding stagnant swampy areas, verdant as they appear are not yet funded for creek openings.

The corps of engineers has plans, so where are the funds?
