I think you mis-read it.
Quote: federal law grants exclusive and private control over the waters of the river, outside the main shipping channel, to riparian landowners.
Now to me this reads as anything OTHER then a navigation channel is off limits. That is a HUGE blow to the American public, I mean after all who's going to use shipping channel to go water skiing etc? As a Floridian this might impact some waterways, but it's not enforcable in the open ocen which is what most of Florida is about anyway.
