Your River Cries for Help Now!
Our mission is to fight for a safe, healthy and ecologically balanced St. Lucie River Estuary and Indian River Lagoon, natural resources that are vital to the economy and quality of life of Martin County and the Treasure Coast.
Once considered the most biologically diverse estuary in all of North America, here you can learn more about the complex issues that surround the degradation of the St. Lucie River Estuary. The environmental crisis we find ourselves facing did not occur overnight. It has spanned over fifty years of extreme over-drainage inland.
Learn how it all began, and what still needs to be done.
Thar she blows. The dirty water from inland that’s shunted to us in Stuart in order to keep the Everglades Agricultural Area over-drained is now totaling hundreds and hundreds of millions of gallons per day.
It’s doing terrible damage again to all kinds of marine and other life. The only answer is a flowway through a small part of Big Sugar, and more people, if not the politicians, may be getting the picture.
It’s crucial that river advocates turn up at the Stuart locks Aug. 3 to voice our anger at the horrible harm the discharges do to our community. We still get no sincere help from sugar coated officials. Your voice could make the difference.
It’s truly amazing that a wonderful community can be degraded this way.
