The Port of Freeport Commission was scheduled to adopt a resolution in favor of re-opening the mouth of the San Bernard River in a meeting March 14. The silting shut of the mouth causes the river to re-route itself and exit to the Gulf through the west floodgate of the “New” Brazos River, which causes silting around the floodgates and creates problems for barge traffic on the ICW – another reason area residents support keeping the mouth open, besides for recreational and strictly environmental reasons.
