Homeowners want to open up Dauphin Island ponds; scientists fear island will breach | al.com: The most vulnerable spot on Dauphin Island is right in the middle, directly across from a series of 22 ponds dug by town officials during the emergency response to the BP oil spill.
While a coastal engineer warns the ponds should be filled in as soon as possible to strengthen the island against hurricanes, seven homeowners who allowed the ponds to be dug on their property have applied for permission to open them up to the Mississippi Sound.
