• At some point over the next few days NC Hunt and Fish will be migrating to a new server. We are not changing our hosting provider, but we are changing machines within that provider. The reason is that an external vendor, cPanel, has increased the price of their software and we need to migrate to a different control panel. When the migration occurs, the site will be unavailable and it will remain unavailable until the DNS servers are populated with the new IP address. This could take a day, but usually happens overnight. Once the site goes down you should clear your cookies and cache in your browser so you no longer attempt to connect to an old instance. Instructions will be posted on the old server so people who are stuck there will know how to find the new server.

This may shock some people but....

Long shot, but you think the tugs might be turning up the sediment around the old outfall pipe area. They dumped a lot of harmfull shit in that river for years...??

Thats a lot of sand to haul in by truck in that pic. Looks like dredge spoil judging by the berm system around the fill area. They dredge the area behind the plant and deposit the spoil on plant property?
Just some wild ass guesses on my part.

Id look at the timing of the dredging in relation to when you saw the grass beds die up that way.
Not making any statements about that being the culprit. Just thinking out loud.

Why's that? The algal blooms it's talking about are in the Albemarle Sound not just ponds and the Chowan River. This stuff is having a direct impact on our fisheries.
Man, my bad! Ones I'd seen, dogs dying, were in ponds and lakes...

I'd like to see the situation investigated instead of just writing it off....find the reasons and fix it.
