I knew it a week ago when I heard multiple people coughing at the Venice inlet...me included.

It crept up here from Charlotte Harbor where the nasty nitrogen-rich Lake Okochobee overflow gets dumped in to.

Let's hope is doesn't proliferate and ruin our Summer.

Lake O overflow gets dumped into the Caloosahatchee River, not the Charlotte Harbor. Good luck on your search on Edgewater.

Hmmm I wonder if that's why I was super stuffed up last night and coughing. Don't feel sick at all and haven't really been anywhere where I could have been exposed to COVID or anything else.

The Caloosahatchie River dumps out just South of Charlotte Harbor, and the prevailing tides takes it all North directly into Charlotte Harbor. Just look at the current FWC Red Tide maps.

So, yes, it doesn't dump directly into C.H. but that is where all the dirty water flows into, and collects.

Charlotte Harbor acts as a still brewing up Red Tide.

Edgewater...spent 1/2 day looking at lots that have direct access to deep water w/o bridges. I might buy a few lots as an investment, & park my boat behind one of them.

I want to look further North 1st due to Red Tide always starting South then creeping North. Englewood would be better.

My cousin over in Palm Beach told me her son and family had gone over to Sanibel after visiting her, but they had to leave because of red tide. That was about a month ago that they were here.

People thought it would be a better idea to have the Ag polluted Lake O water drain into the Gulf, (& Atlantic) rather than have it naturally filtered, as it flowed South through the Everglades.

Remember the "Save The Everglades" crowd?

Now, we are spending Billions to undo it.

The right answer was to remove the Ag pollution (mostly cattle & sugar, but some citrus too) entirely by moving it elsewhere. Big Ag paid politicians off to keep it there, so that is where the blame lies. Much of it still remains.

Collier and Lee counties have higher red tide numbers south of Sarasota County and now the former Piney Point phosphate plant in Manatee has a leak of polluted process water north of our area. It’s looking like an environmental disaster with discharges going into Tampa Bay causing possible algae blooms if it continues.
