Its time to finish restoring our coast
Our View - Dec 30, 2010
Several years ago, it was predicted we would be beyond the point of no return in saving the Louisiana coast if a lot of work to restore it were not done within 10 years. Here it is almost the beginning of 2011 and very little has been done.
The main project in that direction recently has been the building of berms to prevent oil from the BP oil spill from washing ashore along very few of the barrier islands. Though much oil did not threaten to come ashore, the berms did a secondary job of helping to build up some of those islands which also protect us from hurricanes and further erosion of our inland wetlands.
