How much can controls at the dam effect water level? It takes man-made measures days or weeks to and raise or lower the water levels a few inches, according to Bevacqua. Water and storms from Mother Nature can change the level in a few hours.
Godfrey feels that the power generating dam at the Saunders Generation Station and big shipping are behind the current proposal. Shipping wants to deeper water to add more tonnage on and the power company wants more water to produce more electricity, according to the legislator who lives in Wilson.
"All we can do is get the people out to fight," Godfrey said. "It's not just the property owners, because it is all the taxpayers."
A tele-conference will be held at 7 p.m. Wednesday when the stakeholders will have an opportunity to speak and listen to the IJC commissioners, according to Bevacqua. Public comments received by Aug. 30 will be included in the record.
