County launches webpage for public updates on algae response
Lee County has launched a webpage that will allow residents, property owners and businesses keep up to date on the response to red tide in the Gulf of Mexico and blue-green algae in the Caloosahatchee and area canals.
The page can be found at www.leegov.com/waterqualityinfo.
A site is also available through a link on the homepage at www.leegov.com.
The page includes timelines and project updates for Lee County’s Algae Cleanup Test Project and Red Tide Beach Cleanup. A map shows the location of dumpsters where the public can drop off dead fish.
There are also helpful links included to Lee County municipalities and state agencies, such as the Department of Health, Department of Environmental Protection and Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.
