We gave up our slip at the Manatee Cove Marina at Patrick because we couldn't stand the disgusting water any longer. We now have a new Robalo R242 and keep it at the Sebastian River Marina in dry storage. We are enjoying going out the inlet into the beautiful blue water of the Atlantic ocean so much. What a change from the rivers. I haven't been keeping up with the Lagoon happenings. Have they started any dredging or ANYTHING yet? Last week I stopped in at Manatee Cover marina and the water was still poop brown.

Dredging at Turkey Creek and Eau Gallie River.

Brevard Co. is in the 5th year of the 15 year BMAP cycle that 

sets mandatory cleanup levels for inputs to the Lagoon.

So yes, work is being done.  Expect to see results in another 5-10 years

IF

people continue to pay attention to the problem.

It took 50 yrs to screw up the Lagoon,

expect it to take a long time to clean up.

Sure -

FL Dept of Environmental Protection, in cooperation with the St. Johns River Water Managment District, has set a Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) for the various basins of the Lagoon.

The TMDL represents FL's numeric criteria requirement for pollutants in a water body as spelled out in the Clean Water Act.

The Basin Management Action Plan (BMAP) is the agreed upon, formalized, legally binding plan for reaching pollutant levels less than or equal to the TMDL.

Lots more here:  http://www.dep.state.fl.us/water/tmdl/

You can find the IRL BMAPs under the BMAP link to the right.

I hear on the radio that the project plan for expected

$34M funding from the 0.5cent sales tax goes to county commission tonight.  

Looked online to find a copy of the plan but was unsuccessful.

Anyone?
