In their greed it seems developers aren't factoring in the way these estuaries are formed and maintained by Mother Nature...It's Not Nice to Mess with Mother Nature.

Firstly, perhaps you shouldn't be building there in the first place?
Secondly, is there any way that the sludge can be treated to make it safe?

Money Talks,unfortunately it doesnt buy Brains. Taxpayers must refuse to make any contributions towards stupidity. This is going to be a wasted & highly expensive exercise, nature takes it's course.

"How long before the lessons of West Park and Pine Harbour are learned and acted upon?". Oh, very, very long. When have people ever learned from previous mistakes. And you can be sure that the developers building these marinas will keep quiet about it and let the people who buy a place there to moor their boat find out for themselves when theirs keels over in the mud. Then it's back to the councils to dig the toxic sludge out and leave it...
Money doesn't talk, it screams and drowns out common sense.
