Mississippi River Mouth Debris Jetting Using Acoustic Transducers


The Mighty Mississippi is backing up and causing flooding issues due to over growth build up at its river mouth. This is dangerous because that region is already so close to sea level. In fact much of the City of New Orleans is 12-feet under sea level and protected by a man-made seawall. If we could clear the path to the ocean and watch the fertilizer run off from up river, we may save ourselves a lot of future outlays in the event of a sea wall breach. The current estimate is 155 Billion Dollars in FEMA aid if a large category Hurricane makes a direct land hit at New Orleans, Louisiana.

Using acoustic transducers to molecularly align the water molecules to make them thicker, fast moving water can be forced into a smaller and smaller area and used like a large volume pressure washer. This jetting effect can help clear out some of the growth and allow water to flow thru the area into the Gulf of Mexico and reduce the rising water build up of the current constriction. It will also help prevent the formation of large algae blooms, which poison fish and can get into water supplies. Although no one has ever tried this before and the power consumption to do this would be intense, it is considerably better than doing nothing and what we learn in trying and researching this could in fact yield transfer technologies in many other sectors.

Currently we have a problem, which is getting worse and New Orleans is a time bomb in our future for catastrophic calamity. Many locals will not leave in the face of a Hurricane, instead throw Hurricane Parties like there is no tomorrow. Unfortunately all this sound fun, but if they are anything short of Olympic swimmers with something very buoyant in the ever increasing bayou; there will not be a tomorrow for them anyway. Anyway, y'all think on this one and get back to me.
