"Ryan Allnutt. Welcome to daily Detroit. Hello to be here. All right You write about some of the ecological restoration work going on on Belle isle. That has been kind of complicated by the high water levels on the Detroit River but before we kind of get into that set the stage for us. What does it look like over there? On Belle isle right now with the high water levels will yet at ring road that goes around. The the island people used to get to a lot of different locations has been closed since last year. I mean it's been close for over a year at this point. I think you know so people access to the island just isn't what it used to be an especially that really wild eastern and the island where you have the lagoon and that big field. The woodland's just high water all over the place you know and it was really this logo. Canoga restoration projects opening up that lake and canal to the river that led to high waters and last year. That's causes flooding yet. Talk a little bit about that project. Oh canoga where is that? And what were they do so lake? Okay is across the ring road. It's called the strand that the name of the road right there from the coastguard station. And you know. It's a pretty large body of water on the inside of the island and in the past have been kind of stagnant with a lot of weeds in style. The Blue Heron Lagoon which is on the eastern end of the island was opened up to the river several years ago to create fish spawning habitat and then this project with connecting the blue her in lagoon with Lake Oak noca- in the canal. So that essentially all the major lakes and waterways in the interior of the island are now connected to the trade river. And what was the goal of that project? Will I think the the primary goals were to create fish? Spawning habitat these sort of like sheltered areas. Away from the main channel of the river could be really important for breeding for a lot of fish in the Great Lakes system it also creates habitat for short birds and and other birds and then it's also going to create what sometimes referred to as a blue trail basically kayaking route so that people can go through the Blue Heron Mcginn the lakes the canal in paddled throughout the island. Yeah so I mean I. I think in a lot of ways. It's a really cool projects. It's just created these difficulties right so you spoke in your article for Planet Detroit. You spoke with a lot of sort of shoreline engineering experts. What kinds of things are people looking at doing by way of solutions to try to stem the problem of flooding specifically for this project? They're putting a cofferdam which you know that can mean different things in different situations but for this us. It's basically it's inflatable temporary. Damn that's GONNA re close off Llego Canoga from the Detroit River if got a colver connecting Lake Oh Kenosha to the Detroit River. Dad's GonNa remain closed which that can be closed off again in the future. And then they're doing pumping for basically all of this stuff is to make the system of waterways better able to respond to high water in the future and that's what shoreline engineers are saying. We need to be doing that. We need to make our systems in the Great Lakes. More adoptable to either very high water very low water so that can mean things like floating docks and marinas and that can mean these sorts of like temporary flooding structures but then it also means like a lot of kind of soft engineering solutions so rather than having like concrete and steel that can just get battered over the years by floodwaters and stuff you create kind of a softer shoreline with rocks and native plantings absorb some of that water and hopefully limit flooding going forward one of the things. That's kind of ironic about this project. Is that doing things like this. Getting rid of hard elements putting in planning and other kind of like soft infrastructure is really what can help with flooding in the future but in a place like the Detroit River that just receives a ton of water from the rest of the Great Lakes system. No amount of local controls are going to be able to make up for historic flood. Wires COMING THROUGH. So it's mostly a matter of learning to live with all the water and be able to adapt to it as opposed to try to push it away and prevent it. Yeah exactly and I think that is going to be the key to dealing with either really high really low waters which were probably going to be seeing both in the future but then we also ought to accept the fact that it as much as the softening of the shoreline is a good idea in the Detroit River. We still need to have some hard elements because there is just so much water. I mean I think it's over a million gallons of water per second that moves out of the Detroit River Brian. All nuts story and planet. Detroit headline flooding on Bella has resumed. What does that mean for twenty twenty and beyond we will link to it in the show?
