Cleaning up Morgan’s Point

March 9, 2014

Dear Sir,

After reading page three of The Royal Gazette of Monday March 3rd, 2014 in reference to the Morgan's Point cleanup, I would suggest instead of trying to clean up Bassett's Cave, which would cost millions of dollars, I would fill in this cave with sand and clean rubble.

Just my opinion.

Bassett's Cave has too much damage to bring it back to its original status. Bassett's Cave never had any stalactite formations in it.

One would ask, where would you get all this rubble and sand from? Tudor Hill would be a good area to start cleaning up, as Tudor Hill is part of the Morgan's Point that the US Navy had,

There are two derelict buildings there that used to house the top secret installations that were used by the US Navy during the Cold War in the late 1950's, and early 1960's, which also worked with the Argus Tower installation.

I would further suggest that the storage area of the WWII bombs that would have been used in this war, have those concrete igloos taken out of the ground and placed alongside the northeast side of Morgan's Point as to help break the wave action that constantly pounds this northeastern area of Morgan's Point.

These storage igloos weigh some three and a half tonnes each, and there's many of them very close to Bassett's Cave area.

Another suggestion for Morgan's Point clean-up would be to fill in the waterway behind where the large Mess Hall that the Navy had for their troops with rubble from the old generation plant, the cold storage building, the administration building, the thick walled communications building, and the old supply building.

I'm sure it would make some more acreage to Morgan's Point.

Signed,

Peter Bromby Sr.
