Delta fight: State agencies, island owner battle over wetland status

In a growing legal battle, the owner of Point Buckler Island, a small piece of land in the Suisun Marsh, says a former duck club on the island is located on an artificial man-made wetland, while state officials claim it's a natural tidal wetland and should be protected. The battle could have repercussions on other Delta islands, where deferred maintenance may open the door for government agencies to claim private property rights are lost.
