63 THOUSAND ACRES!

That is what the weir is preventing.

Smalls knows what he is talking about and seems to be as much of an expert on the situation as there can be. He has been out there in THAT marsh trying to fix the problem that the ship channel and Rita caused. You do NOT want the marsh surrounding Big Lake to look like the marsh south of Leeville! Bye bye productive ecosystem, bye bye ducks, bye bye land!

The fishing is pretty good in Leeville. Hell maybe the best thing would be to take the wiers down, let the marsh change to salt, lose land, let Big Lake get bigger. Bigger lake, spreads the pressure out. There. Problem solved. Send this to Jindal.

Hahaha, good joke. Oh wait.....you were joking right? I wouldn't call myself an expert by any means, but I have done a lot of research on the subject, and since this thread, I've been doing alittle more in the direction of the affects of weirs as well. My stance on this argument is and will continue to be that we need those weirs. The evidence speaks for itself. When you step out into a marsh in this estuary with heavy organic matter in the soil, and all you see for miles is brackish and salt marsh vegetation, the system is not what it was. We may never see that marsh return to what it was, but then again, there is always hope......with proper management.

Just FYI to "W". The weirs have slots always or near always open for free flow of fish, shrimp, etc. Also, the state will open the main gates strictly for the free flow of fish, shrimp, etc. for estuary health and you are too closed minded to see. They aren't the devil. They understand both the need to maintain/revive marsh and keep the estuary healthy.

So now shrimp crabs and fish can swim up a 3ft flow of water ???

Are they ever gonna put rocks from super cut south towards and thru washout. That should control the tide from the ship channel which in turn help stop erosion behind weirs.

The weirs are not just there to stop erosion. The weirs are there to control salinities in the marsh.

Rocks on the channel would slow the inflow of salinity into the lake which in turn slow it into the marsh. When ship channel was first dug land was all the way down the channel besides old river(jetties) and weirs were not needed. First washout (got its name from washing out due to channel flow) disappeared then 9 mile to super cut. Just a thought

its happening right before your eyes, erosion, saltwater intrusion, vegetation changes, what's next? One only needs to look further east to see this
