Homeowners, businesses, vacationers, and local workers near Florida’s coastal waters are suffering from ANOTHER HUGE TOXIC ALGAE OUTBREAK, particularly around Lake Okeechobee.
Exposure to these toxic waters can kill pets and marine life, create intestinal and respiratory distress, and has links to causing cancer, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, and ALS.
The culprit — pollution from sewage, fertilizer, and manure.
For eight years, Gov. Scott and Republicans in the state legislature have failed to address this critical health and environmental concern. Now, the problem is so out of hand these giant blue-green plumes can be viewed from space.
District 93 depends on our beautiful coastal economy for real estate and tourism, and this sludge in our intercoastal and ocean waterways will hurt us far more than just by being an eyesore.
Only by coming together can we make a difference.
