Stop the Destruction of our Coral Reef

We the undersigned demand that the Florida Department of Environment Protection ensure the new Delray Beach ocean outfall NPDES permit is written to comply with the requirements and the spirit of the Federal Clean Water Act by: 1) Requiring the permit applicant to demonstrate that no unreasonable degradation to the marine environment will occur as a result of the treated sewage discharge. 2) Establish nutrient monitoring and nutrient discharge limits to prevent the continuing algae blooms and unreasonable degradation to the receiving environment. 3) Require onsite monitoring of the coral reef system to accurately assess the impact of the treated sewage discharge on the diversity and health of the surrounding biological community.
