    River flow and how it is changed by man is both good and bad on the ecosystem that depends on its existance. This seems to be the most accurate description on problems of Mississippi River Delta. Sort of the old saying "damned if you do or damned if you don't," probably best describes what, if, or when things happen or can be under man's control. Example – several years ago I noticed the channel @ Venice and below had shifted – to the east right @ Venice and then to the west of the old channel @ Cubits Gap. Within a year of so after the West Delta project was done – possibly one of the fastest projects ever witnessed by anyone who watches the Corps of Engineers work. I felt then and still do the project was to hydorlogically try and force the river to correct the channel shift which had occurred in the area.

    As a "non-professional" student of the River I would like to know when the next meeting will be held – I'd enjoy attending and listening. . .
