WHATS GOING ON OVER THERE?

Maybe someone on this thread knows what's going on north of 36 street cswy in Biscayne bay? Now I 've heard that story about there planting grass to mitigate the dredging on government cut but is more than that! they have been at it for over a year and all kinds of equipment at pelican harbor (79 street) when they(who ever THEY are) transport large loads of fill, rocks and stuff. There must be three barges working all the time it's more than planting grass! This is one of my fishing spots so WHATSUP. I know it's state waters but maybe someone knows what is really going on? Thanks in advance Mike.

    There are two mitigation projects over there, and both are eventually planting seagrasses. That area is an old dredge hole from the causeway construction. The plan is to fill the deep holes with fill and sand, then plant seagrasses in the new shallow water. The Port mitigation is complete with seagrass planting starting any day now. The private mitigation is still filling the dredge hole hence the barges full of fill.

    But why would they fill in those really good snapper holes and cover up some pretty good artificial reefs that Dade co created back in the 80's and 90's and plant grass there, there's already grass in that area if you want to plant grass plant it a little farther north where the grass used to be but disappeared a few years ago ( around marker 14 in Malloy channel)
