|Delaware Riverkeeper Maya van Rossum|
delivers a voluminous set of comments
against deepening to the Army Corps
Monday, July 2, 2012
The Army Corps is playing a bait and switch. They have been unable to get an approval from the State of Delaware for the controversial deepening project and so have now submitted application materials for "maintenance dredging" but, surprise surprise, their maintenance dredging application asks to take the River down to 46 feet, the exact maximum depth of the Deepening Project.
This is the worst kind of deception — a public agency funded with public dollars trying to hoodwink the public.
Please send your letter today. http://www.delawareriverkeeper.org/act-now/urgent-details.aspx?Id=119
Tell Delaware to deny the applications from the Army Corps.
As a nation we stand for good government, for honest government — our federal agencies need to be held to the highest standard — and a bait and switch on the public doesn't do it.
