Sep 16, 2017. The river mouth has sat shut for four years and nine months, not opening to the Gulf of Mexico, but a big push from Hurricane Harvey flood waters corrected that condition. Yes, it’s open!
The depth on the east side of the river is between 7 - 10 ft and about 4 ft on the west side. It measures 40 to 50 ft. across.
Keeping the mouth open is the next big challenge. Stay tuned for what measures are planned next!
