    Although I was unable to attend as planned I have enjoyed reading your comments and support efforts to improve water quality and the environment.

    6 IS THE FIX vote for those who support it. That's pretty much the way you can help the most according to the pros who spoke today.

    There was a passionate and informed group of people attending. As I listened to people speak I thought of the frog in a boiling pot of water. If we knew how bad it's going to get we'd jump out of the fouled water pot now. We've seen a slow progression of vanishing sea grasses and marine life. The brown water, scummy foam and the red tide gas attack gets a little worse each year. Will we wise up and jump out of the rising crisis before it kills our greatest natural resource?

    This is another view regarding the bacteria in the Gulf now. The media has been talking about the releases from Lake O", but I can't help but wonder about this.

    Hey everybody. I'm not able to make this Meetup due to a family trip that was scheduled by my sister after I had scheduled this.
    I hope you all show a united front for this cause, and please take lots of pictures.

    I,m not going to make friends with this comment but here goes. If you have your yard fertilized each month or live in a complex that does, or patronizes a golf course that does then you are one of the main problem with pollution.

      True, BUT the big issue is the water releases from Lake O. There are other alternatives not being pursued....Where the water is going is the issue. Yes, it is polluted due to our environmentally unfriendly practices. We all can do better.

      This is a link to a flyer that has some more details. This rally was created by some of the people who organized the rally on the Sanibel Causeway a few weeks ago. They created a Facebook group called "Save the Caloosahatchee River". It is an open group with about 1,250 members so far.

    There are many causes, but the elephant in the room is 440,000 acres of sugar cane fields. SFWMD allows them to back pump their flood water into lake O. The water releases from lake O have been 5 to 6 times the acceptable flow rates. All that water is loaded with nutrients.

    what about paddling over from bunche beach?

  • Roger W.

    Is there another website/publication for this event. I told several people on Pine Island who are very interested in water quality about this and they were not aware of the Rally.

    Sounds GREAT!!! I have lived on the Caloosahatchee River for the last five years and every year is getting worse......
