PAFB Inlet



Something must be done.

-------------------------
So if you are a surfer I wish you the prosperity that allows you more time to pursue the salt water dream, and the true happiness that comes from warm water, clean waves and the companionship of your fellow surfers. If you are an internet troll just spewing bs then f off.

So instead of treating the problem that is causing the IRL to be in bad shape (over construction, overworked sewage system, overpopulation, piss poor regulations, dumping dirty water into the IRL), we instead are going to build an inlet, and continue to allow over construction, continue to overwork our sh!tty sewage systems, continue to overpopulate, and continue to dump water into the river, and continue to not give a fck? treat the symptom, not the disease? i wouldnt want you as my doctor that's for sure

This clown is a "Coastal Engineer " for Christs sake ! (What a Total Oxymoron that is ! ) So while most of us SANE surfers were in the ACTUAL lineup, THIS Joker was taking classes in ORLANDO under the Florescent lights and now somehow has the Audacity and Moral Superiority to tell us what is wrong with our Surf Breaks ???? What is wrong with this picture??????

Are we sure this isn't just simply people wanting a shortcut from the river to the ocean?

I liked the disclaimer, "Disclaimer: I am not a scientist or an engineer.", and the part about "Seal Level Rise". Sigh. I think it's unfortunate that with all the money spent on public education about the Lagoon, this is still a topic.

Without reading the article, I support an Inlet at Patrick. Been saying it for years. Still need to get the actual problem taken care of, but this would definitely be great for the lagoon, the local economy, and more. I'm sure it would make for a new decent surf spot as well. Just my 2 cents, but I'm no scientist or engineer either.

I said:" something needs to be done." I did not say this was the answer. I put it out there for consideration. But 2 of you are intellectually bankrupt. ? So yea

With all DUE little RESPECT , I for one , personally prefer NOT to have my Coastline " Re- Engineered " in any way, shape or form at all, period ! ( The mere title of your occupation ,strongly suggests that you can some how override Mother Nature, bend her to your will and put her in her place, , if only you could see the folly of your ways ! )

I tend to agree with Joe. If mother nature wants an inlet there, I'm not going to try and stop her. But I certainly don't want anyone else trying to do her job.

It is an interesting idea for sure. I'd be curious on what the tidal changes would do to the banana river. Living on South Merritt island and directly across from Patrick I would have a close inlet to the Ocean! Property value would go up, but would I see my backyard underwater during high tide?

The lagoon is dirty for sure. I think a flush would do it wonders and bring back some life to it.

I remember moving here in the late 70s and seeing pods of mullet that you could walk on to cross the river. Nowadays, I can't remember the last time I saw a mullet pod.

I'm no expert, but worth looking into. (and, selfishness, make a great jetty surf break as well! )

Every time I hear this, my disgust mounts. Let's put this proposal in simple terms - we've f'd up the river with our sh_t so we should flush that toilet into the ocean. People used to think the river was so big that it wouldn't matter, now they are saying that about the ocean. Here's a better idea - quit flushing our sh_t, including stormwater, septic tanks (they leach through our very porous soil), toilets, lawn and plant fertilizers, etc, etc, etc, into ANYTHING. Let's spend the money and make the effort to clean things up!

The halt in sand flow would carve A1A from in front of Patrick. A pump house would be required. And a bridge. And navigation buoys. And jetties. And rock walls.

State funding? Ain't a goin to happen. They can't even be bothered with pollution reduction.

So long and thanks for all the fish.

Are you sure that's not a picture from China, India or some other country that doesn't care about it's environment? We are the Sunshine State and base our economy on tourism, we would never let our water get that bad, right?

That's funny, someone thinks there is a possibility of a new inlet being built in Brevard...I guess if you are going to dream....dream big..(oh yea, fix 1st peak while you are at it) Never gonna happen.

We used to catch some nice trout around that mangrove clump just north of 13th.
