The money question is huge but so is the environmental one. This is what the Riverkeeper FB page had to say today about this development:
"Not just that it is expensive to dredge the river, but it is expensive to try and mitigate for the severe environmental harm that deepening the river will inflict. "The cost of the deeper dredging project is unknown, but prior estimates for a deep dredge of the river have ranged up to $1 billion." Lets put money into creating jobs on the river, without all the harm."
