With toxic algae yet again plaguing Florida’s water, residents are still left vulnerable due to inadequate warnings about the health impacts of exposure and retroactive “solutions” that focus more on temporary clean up than tackling the issue at its root cause.
Today’s Clean Water Conversation delved into the details of this worsening crisis. We heard input from Florida Gulf Coast University algae scientist Dr. Barry Rosen, Lake Worth Waterkeeper Reinaldo Diaz, and Stuart resident Becky Harris on the toxins in our water, the threats they pose to people and our pets, and how you can become an advocate for change.
