Still a mess and a health hazard. Time to move it.

The health hazard is caused by man removing something that is natural. This island would have wonderful dunes if it weren't for the cry babies wanting "clean" beaches.
Padre Island wouldn't exist if the sargassum had been removed.

Island Runner please expand on health hazards. I would like to know so I can protect my family and myself.
We are missing the chance of a life time to build up the dunes and the beach , but if its a health hazard then we need to protect all that go to the beach and not let anyone on the beach!
The Health department needs to know about these hazards, also EPA and the Coast Guard and other groups!
If this is a true health hazard then all beaches along the gulf coast need to be shut down.

Jim, do you have a cinder block laying around the house somewhere?
Ask it the questions.
You'll get a faster answer...and the cinder block won't hide what it is...[wink]

I still say the City of Galveston should dry the stuff, put out some cases of ziplock bags by it, and post signs that say "Free Weed"...
It'll all be gone by morning...

Health hazard? Quit whining about it. Like sand?

It is a health hazard. It gives me the heebee jeebees. On the other hand it cushions your fall from the seawall.

Jim Forsythe

What is the health hazard? Just like my post below I need to know so I can protect myself and family. You may be confused about what a hazard is!
