Picture of the Month

In Pittsburg, an industrial city located on the Suisun Bay in Contra Costa County, a fire that broke out in a nearby homeless encampment traveled to Mallard Slough, catching fire in the low lying vegetation. The "Marsh Fire" has been burning since late May as thick deposits of peat, a carbon-dense, combustible soil formed by decaying marsh plants, resist traditional fire fighting methods. Even with hundreds of gallons of water dumped on the slough, the Marsh Fire continued to smolder from the ground up, creating poor air quality in the local neighborhoods. This photo (evoking our energy dependence on fossil fuels with a natural gas plant in the distance) was taken on July 18, several days after the Contra Costa Fire Department began to flood the marsh by pumping 20,000 gallons of water per minute from the Delta and the Contra Costa Water District.
