Clean up Lake Okeechobee Cyanobacteria and prevent future blooms while moving on FL amendment 1.
Lake Okeechobee is covered in cyanobacteria, polluting our waterways to the East via St. Lucie River and West via Caloosahatchee River. There is a serious threat to humans, marine life, and our ecosystem. We are seeing an influx of red tide on our beaches killing countless amounts of fish, seaturtles, dolphins, manatees, birds, marine plants and other life. These animals survive on the delicate balance that is being disrupted by human and chemical interference whether it be agriculture, run off or dumping. Many persons living on canals, waterways and effected beaches are becoming severely ill. Our politicians are not making the everglades restoration as part of Florida legacy amendment 1, a priority as per legislation passed in 2014. Our economy relies on tourism, fishing and many water related industries. Please save our waters, sealife, and our state!
