Thus there is over 3.7 million gallons of water in the Braun Bay area alone.

Let's assume you have 1,000 people there, and they each pee .5 gallons over the course of the day, that 500 gallons / 3.7M gallons, or a diluted amount of .013% pee.

That is of course not accounting for any additional dilution caused from currents through the area (natural, or just caused by boat movement).

Meh, not really in my Top 10 list of concerns about a sandbar.
You would conclude that but they close beaches down for duck itch and I think there are far fewer ducks going in the water around the beaches than what's going on at that sandbar.
But that's where we have a difference of opinion.
If you're OK with it then have at it, but keep your mouth closed. I'll pass.
