Very interesting Bruce.

Were they uncomfortable about improvement because they were figurehead types
and they didn't have a study, sound byte or economic impact in their hands to
make conclusions etc, which you were sorta asking for... Or was it just a
matter of "Okay... Who let the geeks in?" :)

It will be an
interesting process to follow, since the Cahaba already falls short of
federal water standards and the people running this Study were obviously
nudgy at the meeting when questioned about actually _improving_ water
quality and reducing further threats to fishes and mussels. I suspect this
same kind of process (or game?) is being played out in other metro regions.
