Havent't they been studing the release of effluents from sewage plant in New Orleans area? Either way, a lot more info on that topic I would think. I N Rabalais may have something published on number 1. I'd email Larry Reynolds on number 3 if you want to go that route.

1 and 2 seem pretty related. I'd go with 1, consider 2 as a benefit. I'd be interested to see the effects on the algal bloom of passing the water through brackish marsh before dumping directly into the gulf.

Look up Dr. John Day, LSU Department of Coastal Science.

Utilizing wetlands to treat and filter waste water systems instead of conventional waste water treatment plants.

Along the lines of 2 but can be used on a much broader scale/impact.

Also the side effects of the treatment can be used to restore wetland loss.

I have a 22 page paper on the effects of freshwater diversions on the Pontchatrain Basin circa '95. I'll sell it to you cheap, you'll need an overhead projector and a computer that can take those 5" floppy disks.

Yeah, I'd love to do more work on it. I'm an engineer, but mechanical and my background is more thermal than anything, but I just love working on the coast, hence volunteering for restorations. It would be nice to stay involved and not depend on random non-profit events.
