In general, everyone supports using the river resources. There are differing opinions on how to do it, what flow rates should occur, and how marsh creation through sediment pipes should be done. The one thing we can state with certainty is that these huge sediment diversion will not build enough land in time, and all Louisiana will be pounded by freshwater. We cannot take "on faith" that they will use the diversion correctly. This faith was broken with the way they run the Caernarvon which has violated salinity agreements, the erosion resulting from Caernarvon, and the lack of acknowledgment of this situation.
Its a shame all NOLA readers can't take a boat ride and see the damage Caernarvon has caused. The viewpoints would be swayed immediately.....the erosion is that bad and that obvious. The erosion in this case was caused by the diversion, because freshwater vegetation (which replaced the saltwater marsh) either floats or has weak roots and cannot handle hurricane storm surge like saltwater marsh can. And this is just one problem with diversions. There are several.....all as usual set aside by pro-diversion proponents with rose-colored glasses.
