Hazardous water began leaking from a retention pond at a former phosphate processing plant in Manatee County. Since then, homes have been evacuated and a stretch of U.S.-41 was shut down in Manatee and Hillsborough Counties. The next question is, could this toxic water be headed to Southwest Florida?
First Officer Peter Karas of the St. James City Boat Club said about 35 people and roughly 15 boats participated in a clean-up effort around Pine Island. Overall, he said the Boat Club did very well at what they’d intended, including making a substantial donation to Calusa Waterkeeper.
Our Calusa Waterkeeper discusses Lake Okeechobee water levels, ongoing red tide blooms and cyanobacteria in the Caloosahatchee. Plus, he updates us on the manatee mortality rate, and the newly-released Southwest Florida Water Quality Report.
