Hi All - This is an update from Ray Newby, at the Texas General Land Office, to Tom:
The current status of the WGI repairs is that Shiner Moseley is working on the amendment items for the WGI Beach Nourishment permit from the Corps ofEngineers to add additional sand sources available to the project. The most significant source is the South Jetty Sand Source that may hold enough volume to meet our short and medium term sand needs. We're still shooting for the next construction window next Oct. through March after turtlenesting season ends. Please let me know if you need any additional info on this.

So we have been delayed until, the earliest, October ... which means we willgo through this hurricane season without the sand placement. Sorry wedidn't have better news!
