Looks like it worked

Years ago they pumped lake mud into the area between interstate and lake. Driving home this week this area now looks great with grass and trees and no water. Seems like this project worked well if land is what they wanted.

That's the problem,,,,it worked out too good . They didn't spend millions studying it for years on end . They spent the money putting people to work . Land was restored . Not much but tidal waters slowed . More green space to clean the air . Not to mention the deep hole they left in the lake that was better than any artificial reef they ever put that held reds , trout , white trout , flounder , croakers , and gar if that is what you desired.........Nah,,,,it was too easy and pockets don't get greased that way........Never happen again......

Boy you should make is sound so simple your right and they have been wrong for years. Agree on the reef BS. They put a reef cost a ton in the sulphur mines in Larose and no body even knows where it is much less caught a fish.

Instead of a reef if it's there at all they should have dredged and filled in some of the marsh that filled in the mine.....As for the nay sayer's they can simply ride the river road thru the spillway . All that sand there on BOTH sides of the locks was deposited only this spring . So much for no sediment in the river . There is a levee now from Norco to kenner north of Airline . All that river water that came thru the spillway could be diverted thru the swamp and hit the lake clean while rebuilding the swamp simply by cutting thru the spillway levee and digging a small canal thru to the middle of the swamp . But then again that wouldn't line nobody's pockets and it's just too easy.......Take a ride and see what LDWF did on north side of Island road in Point Aux Chene....That was nothing left but open water.......
