It's called sewage, as in irresponsible politicians. We went throughthe same thing a few years back, and now have the cleanest ocean on the East Coast.

No they did not see the tax bill. They were poisened by inconsiderate business owners. They were poisened by our local government. When you ship raw sewage out into the ocean, it will kill what ever comes into contact with it. You computer people, goole red tide and read where it comes from. It is all done by man's greed, and laziness. Instead of doing the right thing and treat the sewage, it is easier to pipe it into the unknown. These scum bags at the control switch should be arrested and put into prison just like any other scum bags. Right chief?????

Much of red tide bloom comes from nitrates and iron. Much of the nitrate comes from fertilizer run off from yards and farms and is carried into the oceans from fresh water rivers. This bloom in particular probably started in the Gulf at the outflow of the Suwannee river and rode the gulf stream around Florida. It normally would have stayed 40 - 60 miles out to sea but a persistant east wind blew it ashore.

Isn't it nice to have all these pretty lawns?
