I have been in contact with both people from the department of environment (NBDOE) and the Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO) this week. I am in the process of applying for the proper permits that would allow us to go uncover the sand mound at the bottom of the river this summer. I have received today the form I need to get the ball rolling on my application process. I have also talked to the guys from East Dive last week and discussed with them of my plans for the summer. I will in the weeks to come fill out various application permits and keep in touch with D.F.O. , N.B.D.O.E. and East Dive.
Right now my plans are:
-1 Acquire the environmental permits (normally valid from June to September)
-2 Raise the money needed to hire professional divers and equipment to do this work. I am not crazy about this idea because everything that has been done to date has cost nothing.
-3 Get divers to uncover the mound sometime this summer.
