Mobile Baykeeper submitted a comment letter on the study released by the Corps on the Mobile Ship Channel expansion project. The letter was on behalf of Mobile Baykeeper’s 4,500 members, Board, the Peninsula of Mobile, and Conservation Alabama. Hundreds of community members, several community groups, and local scientists also submitted their own comment letters. The common thread among the letters was the need for the Corps to address major flaws in the study to ensure our natural resources are protected.
The US Army Corps of Engineers is hosting a public workshop this Thursday, March 16 to address plans for deepening and widening activities related to the Mobile Bay Channel. Any individual interested in the proposed improvements to the harbor may attend.
