Pollution in Florida from the Lake Okeechobee Release. By Geniusofdespair 2013

2013 2013 2013 The tainted sugar water dumped into Lake Okeechobee is polluting the lake and it&nbsp; has to go somewhere else. The lake level is too high and the dyke needs fixin' bad. So to save the dyke from rupture the Army Corps releases mega amounts of water to both coasts, polluting them. Meanwhile, the sugar interests keep sending out post cards saying the Everglades is saved. Hallelujah! Only problem is, it isn't true. Look at these photos. I asked Dawn Shirreffs, Senior Everglades Policy Advisor for the <b>Everglades Foundation </b>what was the scoop with these lyin' flyers. <br /><blockquote class="tr_bq"><i>"No one believes that we are at the final stage of restoring America’s Everglades. It is disingenuous for the sugar industry to suggest otherwise. There is much to be done such as the implementation of the critical Central Everglades Planning Project which will help move water south from Lake Okeechobee. We also need funding for construction of the C-43 and C-44 reservoirs to help stem pollution in the Caloosahatchee and St. Lucie Rivers.</i></blockquote><a href="http://eyeonmiami.blogspot.com/2013/09/for-first-time-ever-protesters-take.html">The vast pollution from Lake Okeechobee has had horrendous effects, again, on both coasts of Florida.
