Community Speaks Up on Corps’ Ship Channel Study

Community Speaks Up on Corps’ Ship Channel Study

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 Corps is studying plans to deepen and widen the Mobile Ship Channel. Currently the study concludes “no impacts” will result from deepening and widening the Mobile Ship Channel. After speaking with local experts, community members, and doing our own research - the study is inadequate and likely underestimates the impacts to our precious natural resources. We need you to take action and submit comments by 5pm, Monday Sept 17th.
