I posted a lot this past April and May 2008 regarding Florida’s Water Pollution issue on GreenReality; the politics of Green.
The politics of Green is EarthRehab’s political web-site, feel free to express your concerns.
Topic’s like The Clean Water Act, Pollution Pipes just off the coast, Water Quality Monitoring, TMDL, Pollution Reporting, and the Endangered Species Act vs. Beach Erosion and Renourishment.

Marine Preserve from coastline to 90 ft. for SouthEast Florida proposal.

The federal government is now proposing to declare an extensive protected area for the two species from the coasts of Palm Beach, Broward and Miami-Dade counties through the Florida Keys to the U.S. islands of the Caribbean.
Designation of the 4,931-square-mile area could affect plans for beach-widening, port expansions, sewage discharges, ship anchoring and other coastal activities. Although it is unlikely to halt them, it would add a layer of scrutiny that could force changes or relocations to avoid harming the corals, said Sarah Heberling, natural resource specialist for the National Marine Fisheries Service
Invitation to collaborate for this effort.

Critical Habitat designation Proposed to protect threatened Florida Corals
Under the Endangered Species Act the federal government has proposed designating almost 5,000 square miles of reef area off the coasts of Florida, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands as critical habitat for the protection of threatened Staghorn and Elkhorn corals. The area includes all coastal waters in Palm Beach County from the beach out to 90 feet deep.
Critical habitat is one of the most important safety nets for wildlife listed under the Endangered Species Act, said Miyoko Sakashita, attorney with the Center for Biological Diversity.
A public hearing will be held on the proposal Tuesday, March 4, 7-9 p.m. at the International Game Fish Association, 300 Gulf Stream Way, Dania Beach.
EarthRehab’s William will attend “said” meeting and keep this thread posted of the outfalls.
