Myth vs. Fact about Lake Okeechobee water releases. Don’t forget the big problem: Septic tanks.


Septic tanks and human waste leaking into the Indian River Lagoon shouldn’t be happening in 21st Century America. But it is happening.

Did you think the South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) is responsible for managing algae blooms? Wrong. The SFWMD samples the water. Does blue-green algae cause neurodegenerative disease? No connection has been found.

More examples of  “Myth versus Fact”, the water releases from Lake Okeechobee last year:
Send The Water South!”? JP Sasser, the former mayor of Pahokee, has strong opinions about that. And remember last year. . .
Will a reservoir ever be constructed? Will a reservoir even work? A supporter of a reservoir south of Lake Okeechobee, also of former Lake Worth commissioner with a PhD, has strong doubts.
