SUN SENTINEL: Fix Florida’s sewage and harmful algae bloom problems | Opinion

Though not directly related to the Everglades – where agricultural runoff is the primary source of pollution – we agree with this OpEd.

For waterways throughout Florida, existing systems for the disposal of human waste, along with failing sewer systems, is the biggest threat we face. Loathe to anger ratepayers, too many local politicians have allowed water and sewer systems to degrade, and in too many instances, fail.

NEWS PRESS: Army Corps Col. Andrew Kelly: A successful year for Lake Okeechobee | Opinion

Anyone leery that change has arrived should read this Thanksgiving message from Col. Andrew Kelly. With pressure from Governor Ron DeSantis and persistent and unapologetic work from Congressman Brian Mast, the Army Corps did something they’ve never done before: They bucked the political whims of Big Sugar.

The problems that plague our waterways and are killing the Everglades won’t be solved with the flip of a switch, but this is what progress looks like. For that, all Floridians should be thankful.
