Help Our Beaches! (2/2/16)

A grass roots effort has prepared a proposed bill that would require sands dredged from the Mobile Harbor Outer Bar Channel to be placed closer to Dauphin Island to counter erosion. The bill also applies to all Alabama coastal inlets that have dredged navigation channels connecting to the Gulf. The proposed bill and related information can be examined by clicking this link

All four of our neighboring Gulf Coast States have enacted similar laws to protect their beaches from erosion caused by dredging channels through their coastal inlets. Only Alabama lacks such a law.

Efforts are ongoing to lobby State Representative David Sessions and State Senator Bill Hightower to sponsor and introduce the bill in the State Legislature. We are optimistic they will do so during the current session of the Legislature that began on February 2. It is important that EVERYONE tell these two gentlemen the bill is important to the State. To help you compose a letter of support, please click on the link above for a sample letter for your consideration. The letters should be sent to below addresses:

The Honorable Bill Hightower
Alabama State Senate, District 35
1 South Union St., Suite 733
Montgomery, AL 36130

The Honorable David Sessions
Representative House District 105
1 South Union St., Suite 417-1
Montgomery, AL 36130

Please send a letter of support for the bill to help protect Dauphin Island. A notebook is being prepared to document all support letters for this bill so they can be shared with State Legislators at future hearings on the bill. So that your letter can be included, please email a copy to: coffeegl@aol.com.

THANKS!!!!!!!!! And, please send your letters now!

Important Meeting Corps of Engineers Dredging (01/12/16)

IMPORTANT PUBLIC NOTICE!

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the Alabama State Port Authority have been working since 2009 to incrementally enlarge portions of the Mobile Harbor. Eventually the ship channel could be deepened an additional 10 feet and widened another 150 feet. To maintain a deeper and wider channel, larger volumes of sands will likely be dredged from the Outer Bar Channel east of Dauphin Island.

Where the Corps decides to place the dredged sands will further influence Dauphin Island's erosion problem and influence flooding difficulties along the entire southern shore of the island.

The Mobile District is required by Federal regulations to issue Public Notices to solicit public comments on Federal Civil Works projects.

You may see the notice at this link:
Public Scoping Meeting for the Preparation of a Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement to Evalauate Improvements to the Mobile Harbor Federal Navigation Channel, Mobile, Alabama

The meeting will be held January 12, 2016, at the Mobile Alabama Cruise Terminal, 201 S. Water Street, Mobile, Alabama 36602 from 5:00 to 8:00pm.

The purpose of the meeting is for the public to identify concerns and impacts associated with the channel enlargement project that should be addressed in the EIS. If you are unable to attend the meeting, the Public Notice also provides directions on how to mail your comments and concerns.

The DIPOA Board of Directors strongly urges you to take advantage of this opportunity to make your concerns known to the Corps by attending the January 12 meeting or mailing your comments.
