In October 2009 Bethel voters decided, 615 to 523, to change Bethel from a "damp" community to a "wet" one, removing the previous alcohol import limit of 10.5 ounces per person per month. Perhaps because of the fact there are still no liquor stores or bars located in the Kuskokwim River's main port city, population 6,080, there is a popular opinion among many Bethel residents that not much has changed.
