COLLIER COUNTY, Fla. — Green gunk has been gathering in canals around Southwest Florida recently, and it’s starting to become a health issue.
So far, blue-green algae blooms have been spotted in Labelle, Alva and Fort Myers.
Conditions at the Davis Boat Ramp are not getting better. The water is smelly, green and is littered with a thick layer of algae.
The US Army Corps of Engineers have a meeting to discuss Lake Okeechobee water releases today. The water releases contribute to the algae blooms we’re seeing in SWFL waterways.
