Our Surf Breaks in Jeopardy due to Pollution : Protest Aug 11th, Stuart Beach
Our Surf Breaks and Beaches Are Being Poisoned.
We are having cyanobacteria blooms (blue-green algae) and the water is so dangerous in the estuary people are becoming sick from enteric bacteria infections. Our Health Dept, Martin County, has issued warnings to avoid contact with the water for months now (and every year during the rainy season). Residents are reporting ear infections and pink eye from the beaches adjacent to the Inlet too. FYI I am an Environmental Tech, it is my job to know the facts.
