Hydroblasting (Round 2): Request for Public Hearing

0 have signed. Let’s get to 2,500!


The St. Johns River Water Management District (SJRWMD) is considering Webster Creek Development, Inc's. application allowing HYDROBLASTING (aka hydroleveling) in the Mosquito Lagoon Aquatic Preserve, New Smyrna Beach, FL. Initial review by the United States Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) resulted in rejection of the application, however, the SJRWMD is favoring approval and has encouraged the applicant to reapply to the USACE.  We are concerned that such activity will have long-term, negative impact on the water quality in the Indian River Lagoon and request a public hearing.                                                                                                                                             

From a recent correspondence to applicant:                                                  "We would like to continue working informally with you to resolve these and any other issues related to the application."                               "Staff suggests resubmittal to the Army Corps of Engineers as soon as possible so that the project can be reviewed in tandem and the permitting effort is as efficient as possible."                                                       -Nanette Church,  Senior Regulatory Scientist, SJRWMD, 7/14/2017
