Florida Department of Environmental Protection Petitioned to Protect People From Harmful Algae Blooms

Green Cape Coral canals have become as predictable as the summer rains, and this year is no exception. But while stagnant city waterways may be nothing new, the health department speaking up about it is. In the past week the Florida Department of Health in Lee County has sent out three email blasts warning of algae.
