THE SAVE LOUISIANA COALITION
******* PETITION STATEMENT*******
We, the undersigned, adamantly, object to ALL new Mississippi River diversions currently proposed in the Louisiana 2012 Coastal Master Plan and support that ALL existing river diversion structures be regulated by salinity control voted on by the existing River Diversion Councils in such a way as to be beneficial to the fisheries’, coastal communities and landowner interests. We SUPPORT large scale, cost efficient, sediment dredging and pipeline delivery, marsh creation and barrier island restoration projects, elevation funding for coastal residents outside of hurricane protection levy systems, historic ridge creation, levy systems for Coastal Communities, shoreline protection, restoration of historical oyster reefs, and other projects in the Louisiana Coastal Master Plan fully supported by the residents of our Coastal Communities and STRONGLY SUPPORT that they be constructed in the most cost efficient manner. We ask that the LA Legislature and the Governor act on making these necessary changes to the Louisiana Coastal Master Plan.
“These diversions will destroy our seafood and sport fishing industries,and in doing so,destroy our coastal communities and culture. THEY MUST BE STOPPED.”
PLEASE TELL ALL OF YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY! SPREAD THE WORD!
Your signed petition will be faxed immediately to Governor Bobby Jindal, Senator Mary Landrieu, Senator David Vitter and other key people in the state government.
