The algae situation in Southwest Florida is getting worse as a bloom decays in the Caloosahatchee River.
Algae first appeared in Lake Okeechobee, then at Franklin lock, the Alva Boat Ramp, and now its in Fort Myers at the Davis Boat Ramp.
There’s a thin green film floating across the surface of the Caloosahatchee. The recent blooms smell worse than they look.
The Calusa Waterkeeper said that they are sampling the green gunk to find out how toxic it is.
