Thank you for all that you’re doing to improve our water quality and to educate us on changes we ourselves can make to help.
I have come to value the work of the Calusa Waterkeeper and its important voice in our community advocating for cleaner water. Keep up with the good work!
We appreciate all that you do for our community and water quality. Great Job! Thank you, The Jensens.
Thank you Calusa Waterkeeper and John Cassani for all you do to educate the public about the water quality crisis we are facing in SWFL.
Thanks to CWK for relentlessly using science and public outreach to fight for clean water in SW Florida! We all benefit.
I have learned so much as a volunteer Ranger with Calusa Waterkeeper. Excited to continue!

John Cassani brings on local advocate, Cat Chase to talk about phosphate mining and radioactive phosphogypsum toxic waste. Calusa Waterkeeper, among many other groups locally and across the nation, legally petitioned the EPA to demand improved federal regulatory oversight of radioactive phosphogypsum waste.
For decades, the city of Fort Myers has polluted its surrounding waters, often with raw sewage. Now, a reckoning is at hand. After months of investigation and negotiation with the city, the FDEP has proposed a consent order that encompasses years of slow leaks, gushing spills, equipment failures and oversight lapses.
Fort Myers City Manager Saeed Kazemi said water testing would show that there’s no trace of “human fecals”. But the non-profit organization Calusa Waterkeeper has said otherwise. The DEP says the city has “not addressed or eliminated loading to water bodies of untreated human waste, which poses a risk to human health”.
