Default stopping a cut

do you guys have any good input on how to stop a cut in the marsh. It opened up last year do to an alligator hole in the levee. It's about 3 feet wide and 4 foot deep and it's going to drain all our duck ponds. Can only access it by boat so a tractor would be out the question.

Yea you could get a little marsh hoe like a bobcat or something or drive you some small sheet pilings and fill it. The faster the better as it will just get bigger and hurt you even more.

What ever you do don't tell anyone, most levee work requires permits from corp or deq. PITA and very time consuming/expensive. If it's not private you better have deep pockets.

4 X 8 sheet of corrugated metal driven down in the mud. You can also add square bails of hay along with some of the other recommendations.

one way we do it is get you 4 4x4 post drive 2 on each side about 3 inches apart so you can slide some 2x12's in between. you want your 4x4's at least 4 foot in the mud. so for you 4x4x12's should be plenty. cut the 2x12's a lil longer so the edges get in the bank good so the water doesnt go around. after you put the 2x12s in nail a piece of 2x4 or something on top so the boards wont float up or have cracks. id get treated but ive also used untreated just depends how long it takes it to silt up. get a post hole driver big enough to drive 4x4s. a lil work to it but it works its either making a dam like this or filling with dirt boat load by boat load.

If you get your original permit, or any permits after building a levee, be sure to state to build AND repair.
If you get one just to build, then you have to get another to repair.
If it is not too big, no one will notice.
If it is a lot of work, they will find it by satelite infared pictures.
Had a friend try to dig a small crawfish pond with a dozer and got caught. Major fines...

We had a guy with a boat that has a loader bucket come in and push up dirt to close a wash out in. After he got a small levee built we threw cut willows on top and put more dirt on top layering the willows and the dirt. The willows took off and grew which helped the levee to hold together. In the past we did not do this and they just washed out again. A lease if a very expensive thing to manage right. Between the lillys and the levees.
