This is the trouble spot of the San Bernard. It’s slated to be dredged open Fall of 2020 to the Gulf of Mexico. RESTORE Act funds related to the Deepwater Horizon spill have been allotted to pay for it. Dredging is planned as the most effective method of keeping the mouth open - forever. FOR San Bernard encourages all involved in this project to use 20/20 vision in 2020 and clearly see completing this government-supported undertaking.
