Must read: A “Point Of View” in The Palm Beach Post.

Col. Jason Kirk, commander of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Jacksonville District, had this information published in the Post editorial page recently; here’s an excerpt:

Rehabilitation of the dike continues as quickly as possible. Over the past year, we completed a study that identified the remaining features necessary to finish the job. We conducted this study while we continued replacing water-control structures in the dike. These structures were prone to erosion and their replacement reduces the risk of dike failure.

In The Lake Worth Herald:

“Big O’s Dike”
“Hurricane Wilma left gaps to the
Herbert Hoover Dike. . .”
