How about "has been impacted".

I was ready to move to Village West Marina in November but the only way a boat was getting in or out of there was with a helicopter.

Is it still so. Family health problems have recently kept us away from boat. Was there some time in early December and although quite a bit of growth still... much better that a month before that. Has it worsened again?

Picts are November. As you mentioned... helicopter needed!

Have they tried poisonng it? That seems to be the common treatment used in the lakes around here to clear invasive weed.

What a mess, I've ran into backwater areas on the upper mis especially around Wisconsin and Minnesota that had vegetation but nothing anywhere close to this amount.

It's situational Art, no rhyme or reason but the Stockton area is generally speaking the worst off.

In a word, yes. Unfortunately the alphabet soup that is California water politics will not allow effective control.

To give a full and complete answer, or attempt to do so, would require a multi page thread of its own inside OTDE to begin unpacking the issue. In a nutshell you can't swing a dead cat by the tail anywhere in this state without hitting somebody representing a special interest group with litigation pending regarding California Delta water rights. In all fairness every one of them feel their pet cause trumps everybody else's pet cause. Lacking a benevolent dictator stepping in and making them all go away the Delta will continue its 50 year old death spiral. My father was a vast wealth of first hand eyewitness knowledge to all things Delta related and I've shared many of his reflections in the SF Bay&Delta small group at this site.

And probably the vast majority have a valid point or two. It's just that you can't have it all. At some point there has to be compromise to deal with the issues, but they're highly charged issues on which people find compromise extremely difficult and elusive. It's like mom, baseball, and apple pie. Ask someone if they're in favor of clean air and water. Of course, they are. But then how clean and at what cost. If they were simple, black and white issues, then they'd have been long ago resolved.
