Public invited to dredge meet To shell dredge, or not to shell dredge--that is the question. To dredge in Lakes Maurepas and Pont- chartrain involves the removal of the non-renewable resource, shell, for which there is an excellent substi- tution, limestone. At the same time, dredging endangers a vital Louisiana industry, fishing, which is based on a renewable resource. Shell dredging will be discussed at the next meeting of Save Our Lakes, a subchapter of Save Our Coast, at Mandeville High School, Wednes- day, Feb. 22 at 7:30 p.m. Especially interesting is the move Attorney General William Guste made when he recently joined five environmental groups in requesting that a halt be ordered to all dredging, until an Environmental Impact State- ment is completed. Such studies were carried out in Texas and Florida, but not Louisiana, To learn more about this vital subject, please join us February 22.
