New Website to Help Monitor Florida Water Quality.

New Website to Help Monitor Florida Water Quality.

Algae blooms have become problematic over the last few years for Florida's waterways.  These blooms can choke off fragile aquatic ecosystems and wreak havoc on the water quality throughout the state. That is why Governor DeSantis announced a new website to keep the public informed on the health of our waterways.

This website will stay up to date on the status of blue-green algae bloom or red tide that threatens parts of Florida as well as keeping us informed on the latest environmental projects. Currently, it is monitoring the three largest bodies of water in Florida, including the largest, Lake Okeechobee. The state says they are working on expanding this to all waterways across the state.

Governor DeSantis announce last year that part of his $625 million budget will include restoration and protection of vital resources, including The Everglades. The budget also addresses beach maintenance and coral reef protection.

The water qualities status for these waterways are kept up to date here.

Professional Waterfront Cleanup did a great job assessing, clearing & maintaining our lakefront and are knowledgeable about state regulations. However after using them for years, they recently, abruptly dropped us as customers. Without contact, returning phone calls or providing notice, they've ended our business relationship, apparently because we asked the local FWC agent about a neighbor's waterfront project where PWC equipment was being used. Our disappointment with their response (or rather lack of one when we've initiated contact) and the way they abruptly ended our monthly service leads us to question their 'professionalism". Our 5 star satisfaction has dropped to this 3 star use-with-caution review.

AdventHealth Waterman

Commercial Lakefront Clearing

Clearing of a lakefront is part of the expansion of the newly renamed AdventHealth Waterman hospital in Tavares. The area was overrun with weeds and other aquatic vegetation. PWC cleared the area of brush and algae, and used wildlife-safe chemicals to spray the area to help prevent the return of the vegetation.
