Isandy, I agree with you. The east coast has the clout and maybe the money to keep the crappy water from their beaches. Not only do the area leaders have to start stamping their feet, so do we, the taxpayers who are putting up with the ruining of the river and electing those power brokers who could care less about the enviorment over their ego's and*****for their pocketbook. Water looks like a New York harbor, dirty, brown nasty water. Been here 20 years, canal water was clean, full of fish and crabs, now no mullet jumping around, crabs gone. Maybe the answer would be to get rid of the locks and let nature do what man can not, clean itself!

Why isn't the water discharged at an equal amount to the East and West coasts? Answer: More clout on the East coast. Nothing will change until the Mayors of all the impacted cities unite and go public with which elected officials can impact change and then these same Mayors get vote threatened, yes vote threaten these same officials with voter vengenance. If nothing is changed, then the Mayors should start with the "VOTE THEM OUT" campaign and get their cities voters out to dump that incumbent. You will see change!!!
