End of point discharge in sight

As the hydrologist paddles, the distance from bank to bank shown in the video below may seem substantial, say, a good few hundred feet across ...

But in the business we know it simply as a point.

The goal of the Picayune Strand Restoration Project is to take that point and spread it out across a line several miles. We have a name for that, too:

It's called sheetflow.
