Bailey Wilson started this petition to bonnet Carre spillway and

We the undersigned people of the United States petition to close the Bonnet Carre Spillway to protect the environment and the economy of south Mississippi.

The Bonnet Carre Spillway has been opened twice since the start of 2019, causing a freshwater boom in the Mississippi sound.  This imbalance has caused a growth of algae that has killed our sea life, and if we are not careful, will kill our economy as well as our environment.  Fisheries will have to relocate if the problem is not fixed, tourism will go down due to non accessible beaches, and wildlife will be greatly harmed.  Closing the Spillway and keeping it closed for the rest of the year should help bring our coast back to life.  #closethegates
