Thanks for that Andrew. I thought the damaging high tides were over the Winter and things were being rectified, not that they had happened so recently.

If they want to reinstate the lagoon and it's nature reserve then perhaps it's time for a more substantial barrier.

This has happened before, one time when the golf course people actually drained the lagoon 'by accident' but nature soon put things back to rights. Tides have been very high and the stormy weather has not helped. A few weeks of normal weather should restore the barrier at Salgados. There is or was a kind of valve pipe fitted at the barrier to ensure a flow of water. Has it been damaged or blocked I wonder?
