If you want the rocks removed, you have a lot of work to do.

Funding will be an appropriations bill sponsored by congresspersons in districts effected by the navigation hazard, at least one senator, and other state and local political entities.

You will also need economic and environmental impact studies; what economic return will the rock removal produce?

And expect various groups to oppose the plan in court; questioning the economic value of the work or environmental issues.

The Army Corp will be starting the process of approval for removing a rock ledge in the Delaware shipping channel near Marcus Hook this year. Opposition groups will also be preparing court challenges.
