Echoes Of The Mekong River Disaster In Mullins Bay: How poorly planned upstream water-related developments destroy downstream environments

Click here to follow the saga of how three man-made rock groynes hogging sand and sediment upstream in Road View, St. Peter have devastated beaches to south in the downstream area.

"Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also among them." Job 1:6 KJV

Meanwhile, yesterday marked the launch with a church service at St. Patrick RC Cathedral of the Coastal Zone Management Unit's "Tsunami And Other Coastal Hazards Awareness Week."  It is very, very doubtful whether any mention at all will be made during the week about the posting of the proper international signage warning of the dangers of swimming near groynes (as this blog has called for in the past), let alone any discussion of the economic and environmental dislocation groynes have caused in the Mullins Bay area since 2006.
