Large Harbor Floating Wetland Project Stirs Debate
Marina owner's proposal to develop 1.6-acre marsh draws support, objections
October 14, 2012|By Timothy B. Wheeler, The Baltimore Sun


If a little green might help restore Baltimore's ailing harbor, how can a lot be bad? That's the question city, state and federal officials are pondering as they weigh a local marina magnate's plan to fill an unused corner of the Inner Harbor with a large floating marsh.

Inspired by a pair of pint-sized experimental wetlands placed in the harbor two years ago, Dan Naor has proposed building a much larger one, covering 1.6 acres of open water in the Harborview marina off Key Highway. The chief operating officer of Baltimore Marine Centers said it's his way of joining the fight to clean up the city's major tourist attraction, which is blighted by trash, unfit to swim in and beset with algae blooms and fish kills.

Traverse City will be First in the World to Sort Fish for Upriver Passage - Dams hurt native fish by blocking their access to rivers — but removing dams to let the fish through would open the way for invasive species. A first-of-its-kind barrier designed to deal with this problem by sorting fish will be tested on the Boardman River in downtown Traverse City. If it’s successful, it could be a model for rivers all over the world.
