Representing 8,131 members

Administrators: River of Light
We are requesting that you bring Attorney General Eric Holder to see the Indian River Lagoon. We feel that there is permanent damage from the Toxic discharges to the Indian RIver Lagoon and the State of Florida has been negligent to our lagoon, the St Lucie River, our economy and our lives.
Here is a photo. Where is this allowed and not addressed? How can we live in the United States of America and have this happen to us?
The State of Florida is refusing to take the steps to buy the land needed to finish Everglades Restoration. The result of this will be continued discharges and total destruction of the Indian River Lagoon, the Caloosahatchee River, the destruction of the Everglades, the Florida Bay and the drinking water of South Florida.
We have health concerns by our local Martin Memorial Hospital.
We have tried all avenues. We have money thru amendment 1 to buy the land. The state legislators are refusing to buy the land that would end the discharges. Our Citizens and Health Officials are concerned about bacteria rates, unidentified illnesses and treatment. Local business owners and winter residents are deeply concerned about our economy and industries that rely on the lagoon.
Higher levels of bacteria in Indian River
FORT PIERCE – There is an increase in antibiotic-resistant bacteria in the Indian River Lagoon according to a new study released by FAU Harbor Branch scientists.
To our fellow citizens and group. Please feel free to sign on with us by sending us your information and the amount of people you represent.
Congressman Murphy We need your help right now!
