Hey, my take on this project is it's a good thing.  It may be a stop-gap
measure, but any attempt is better than none.  Keep them around long
enough that maybe education will catch up with conservation and we can get
rid of those changes the corps made to the rivers and eventually restore
them.  I realize many people don't like to think in "steps", but every
problem needs to be solved in steps.  Otherwise it can just overwhelm
us.  So GOOD GOING ND.!!!!
