    Root about 1/2 mile south of matanzas inlet on the old Summer Haven Road the Ocean has breached the beach and cut through to the Summer Haven River. A homeowner there on the north side of the breach has been able to install a rock jetty to protect his home for the time being. However I do not think he stands much of a chance for long term survival.


    That spit of land just above the words skypic.com is now gone and most of the river is actually filling in with sand. Yes they pumped at millions of dollars of expense a ton of beach sand up there about 3 years ago and mother nature is putting it all back!

    If you have not been to Summer Haven recently (3-4 months) then it is now very different.

    Probably the biggest reason for this breach is that the Army Corps of Engineer's around 20 years ago diverted the flow of the Matanzas River by installing a granite jetty to the south of Fort Matanzas which is on Rattlesnake Island. The jetty was placed to stop erosion of Rattlesnake Island and thus ensure that we would not lose Ft. Matanzas a National Monument.

    Well Newton is proved right again ....(For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction)

    Please note the pic above is probably from around 2005

    We never go down there. We always take to boat out of St. Augustine. That inlet is scary to navigate.

    I have said all along that developing a new Inlet in Flagler County would be a boon to our local economy! The one thing that could turn this unemployment situation around. We could develop an inlet, build marinas, restaurants, a Nature Science Center, and more! Maybe this is it! ( smiles )

    How about:

    Summer Coast Inlet?

    Flagler Sands Inlet?

    Hammock Dunes Inlet?

    Economy Haven Inlet?

    lets do it!

    I agree that a "Navigable Inlet" in Flagler would be 1 heck of an economic boon to Flagler County and in actuality the lack of 1 is in all likelihood the main factor that has stunted economic growth in this area -vs- St. Augustine & Daytona.

    The St. Johns River Inlet in Jacksonville with its depth and size is probably the reason for Jacksonvilles Industrial Development over St. Augustine's even though St. Augustine had many years head start.

    I am not familiar with anyone/anywhere that has made an artificial inlet into the Atlantic Ocean from scratch, however it is an interesting proposal, which may have very many solid economic prospects. At the same time would be able to offer recreation to its residents and enhance their quality of life here at the same time.

    This even though I suspect would be very expensive, may actually pay dollar for dollar more than economic incentives that have been given to private business's in an effort to lure them here or keep them.

    The width of the intracoastal here is another problem that would have to be addressed as well as setting aside waterfront property for commercial/industrial use that Flagler does not have.

    There also could be some solid benefits as to the jetty's effect in stopping beach erosion along its immediate area, however usually it's good for that area but can increase erosion further up and down the line.

    I think it is an interesting enough concept in the beginning that our local governments working together would have a shot at some large backing at both the state and federal levels for additional funding.

    We should dredge it and create a port, we could use the sand to replenish the beaches down to Flagler beach.

    It would be a fantastic expense but I think it would be an important Economic asset and man-made made "natural asset" that we could Draw upon forever, come to think of it the project could possible be engineered to produce power as well. and with the right sea gates provide some protection from storm surge.

    Can you Imagine taking control of the water ways and creating a public transportation system via the Canals and water taxis like Venice ???


    This would get lots of federal dollars and the Jobs would be a real economic stimulus as well as creating a continuous asset for the county .

    we could cover those dad gum toe stubbing rocks too and I might get in the water in high tide.

    A working port in Flagler would fill all of the hotels, you could almost guarantee that the Tourist Development Council would grant their monies to help make this happen.


    It would turn Flagler County into a Vacation /Sportsman/ Fishing/ Golfing /ecotourism hotspot that would increase everyone's property values, get the money rolling in the restaurant business here, and create a huge influx of people with means to make this county great!
