Protect the Tred Avon River from irresponsible commercial barge activities.
This petition had 125 supporters
Commercial barge operations on the Tred Avon River have threatened the natural ecosystem, including the oyster population, for years. Property owners, commercial fisherman, and concerned citizens have seen these barges running aground, prop-dredging through the river bottom at low tide, slamming against shorelines, robbing crabbers of their trot lines, and creating enormous sediment plumes that eventually settle out and smother our oyster reefs and underwater grass beds.
Sign this petition today to urge these industries to clean up their act and operate their vessels responsibly! There's room on the river for all users to co-exist, and one use should not jeopardize the others.
