What happened to all the state money that I read about on this web site that was purported to be available to fix the crappy break wall.

What century is that work scheduled to start ? Or, was that all lip service as usual ?

The last I heard is the Mayor of Hanover received the funds.Everyone is waiting to see when the funds will be put to use on the repairs!

What does the mayor of Hanover have to do with the Sturgeon Point break wall ?

If Hanover got money, they will be spending it in Hanover not Evans.

At a public hearing on Lake Erie boating, an Oceanographer stated  that Sturgeon Point was the worst location for a marina as  the sand flows along the shoreline like a river and  dredging was futile. A new entrance to deeper water would help somewhat but without a stream of water like Cattaraugus Creek that entrance will silt up also. It was believed that a lot of the sand seeps into the harbor through the breakwater.

per J. Mills, Mary H. negotiating with FEMA for funds to repair wall and open Marina, probably will not happen by 15th of May!!!!

I heard yesterday that Sturgeon would not be opening up this year. A friend of mine lives across the street from a town of Evans board member and was told this.

I thought that funds for repair were appropriated last year. This marina has been mismanaged for years. It needs to become the next state park.

Today the Buffalo News came up with an article of Southtowns residents lack of access to Lake Erie. A good time to put your two cents into the comments section.

Dredging contract bids came in extremely high. a lot of gloom here as the police department is needy first. Maybe they can dredge the launch ramp?

Ramp is fine. The sand bar is at the lake opening. See attachment. This picture was taken 4/14/2020 after a gas trip to the res. Fix the freakin wall and you don't have to dredge every year assuming its done correctly.

Gernatt gravel products dredges most of their gravel and sand from lakes they have constructed. I would bet they could clean up the harbor quicker if they could sell the sand there.

1st one that comes to me. How do rivers burn?      https://clevelandhistorical.org/items/show/63

We had oil pollution problems at the Bethlehem Steel Plant in Smoke Creek and the Union Ship Canal. The Smoke Creek oil came when an unidentified employee sawed off the stem shaft of a rising stem valve to make it appear it was closed while it was opened fully. An oil recovery operation was operated for years to help prevent its flow into Lake Erie. Other spills came from employees illegally dumping oil into the water return trenches. That oil was recovered by a small boat crew using a boom and a vacuum truck tanker.  Millions of your tax recovery dollars were spent to control all types of water and air pollution and ended up squandered with the shutdown of our major employer here in WNY.
