Thanks for supporting clean water efforts

To the editor:

Thank you to many residents of Pine Island, Matlacha, and surrounding communities who participated in the Save Our Water protest on Matlacha Bridge on Sunday, Aug. 26.

This protest was organized by Pine Island ROAR. Approximately 150 people demonstrated their support for clean water and their frustrations with the current approaches by elected officials to the ongoing red tide and blue/green algae events and general poor water quality.

Many more honked their horns in agreement and support.

The solutions to these issues are known: reduce the amount of nutrients flowing into our waterways and increase the amount of water flowing south without severely impacting those in its path.

Our efforts can and will make a difference.

We must keep this issue in the limelight and another protest is being planned for September. Once again, thank you.
