Gulf “dead zone” projected to be one of the largest on record:

On the lower end of the river, NWF's coastal restoration campaign advocates for reconnecting the river with its floodplain in a controlled way through sediment diversions. During the annual high water in the spring, when nutrient runoff is at its highest, the waters of the river would flow into wetlands and bayous adjacent to the river. In addition to depositing sediment, the river water would be "scrubbed" of nitrogen taken up by the vegetation of the estuary. The water that entered the Gulf, then, would contribute substantially fewer nutrients to the dead zone.
