How about just dredging it?

Ok, gotta break sorta-blogless-Sunday, but this is too good to ignore

North Carolina’s shallow coastal waterways see a steady stream of traffic from fishing boats, tour trips and outdoor enthusiasts. But this year, uncertain federal funding has threatened officials’ ability to keep those inlets and channels open.

State lawmakers have commissioned a study of the waterways that will show the best way to maintain their navigability. The plan is to create a consolidated database of all federally maintained waterways in North Carolina, and show how much it costs to maintain them and how it’s done.

An advisor for a legislative committee said the plan can be used to lobby for more federal money, or to help find some other source of funds.

Or, rather then spending the money on studying it, you could just blanking dredge it. And you could still ask the feds for the money. You honestly cannot tell me that there haven’t been studies out the ying yang for hundreds of years that are available for this, can you? Ask some fisherman. They will certainly know.

Now, of course, there have been lots of hurricanes and tropical storms that can play with the inland waterways, but still, ask the fisherman, and dredge. Quit wasting the taxpayers money.  Trust me, I know a little about this. I grew up in Brielle, NJ, which is right on the Intercoastal Waterway. I have watched the dredging of the the Manasquan River Inlet many a times, as well as other sections of the Manasquan River (which happens to be the beginning of the waterway, if ye check the map).

As MJ says "Just do it." Cause Bo knows dredging.

    Or how about this one:

    LEAVE IT ALONE!

    Let Nature do it’s thing. You want a clear waterway for business? Let the damn business clear it however they want!
