Kevin Rodriguez

Kevin Rodriguez Yes, there is some build up adjacent to Mardi Gras pass but it is also deepening in the back levee canal where this water comes in. It is also bringing in water hyacinth and an algae that blooms excessively in the spring. The breakage of the bank to allow river water to flow excessively in an uncontrollable manner might be a blessing, but with it will come other problems most people don't see. I still feel there should be areas where sand should be dredged and pumped in to help build up various areas and beachheads to better help in the rebuilding of the coastline.Manag

John Tesvich

John Tesvich But figure out the cost per acre. There is significant cost. Because It's also wiped out the public oyster reefs to the tune of about 1 million sacks of seed and market oysters annually.

Richie Blink True, there are impacts. With other diversions in the planning and permitting stages addressing fishery concerns should be at the top of the state's to do list.

Kevin P. Edgecombe Yet if we don't do this the other impact will be the Gulf moves in with land loss. I don't know of too many oysters being fished from the Gulf.

Rob Buck Aren't oysters at an all time high price and land loss at an all time high loss.
We need land.

Kevin P. Edgecombe Yes we do need land, not everyone can afford a second home away from the danger of yet another storm.

Tom Ballay Why does this diversion result in oyster reef reduction or damage? This is no doubt a dumb question, but i am curious. Is it one or the other - reclamation or oyster production?

Kevin P. Edgecombe Were there oysters 200 to 300 yrs ago when the river ran more naturally? If there were none I can see the argument being that they may have been introduced to the area.

Scott Eustis this could be improved by creating islands to encourage the sediment to drop out before it covers any beds...more land on the land, less land on the bedsManage

Paul J Mcintyre

Paul J Mcintyre And could that "new land" just be the redeposited soil it eroded by the breech that stated Mardi Gras pass. Lot of acreage of stable land was eaten up by the breech

Paul J Mcintyre

Paul J Mcintyre The only natural to build real land with with water/ sediment is by flooding, slow moving water that drops the sediment. Then the flood water has to recede, with an outcome of great elevation!!!!! Not mud that comes out at extreme low tide.

Wayne Rollo

Wayne Rollo Mardi Gras is starving fisherman on east bank out and the state grounds for oysters are dead on east bank. You want build land pump it to the outer beaches and rock off all the points of passes
