Update: San Bernard River Mouth
Posted on Nov 26th, 2012

At low tide on this date, the mouth of the river is approximately 6 feet wide and a few inches deep. The one-mile-long stretch of the river, extending from the Intracoastal Waterway southward to the Gulf of Mexico, is not a Federal project for navigation purposes and is not maintained. It has been suggested that the weak discharge of the river is not sufficient to maintain a stable channel, so that the stability of the mouth depends almost soley on tidal flushing. However, it was dredged open in Feb. 2009 as a special project to relieve pressure of the current at the Brazos River Floodgates.  More past photos of mouth
