Toxic Algae is Harming Citrus County
Lyngbya (Ling-bee-ah) is cutting off fresh-water flow from the springs and its making our once crystal-clear waters dark and dangerous. Even worse: the algae is depleting the oxygen supply and crowding out food sources for manatees, turtles, fish and all kinds of wildlife.
Hear how the Kings Bay Restoration Project had amazing results in just 8-weeks! 74 new previously unidentified spring vents opened, 99% of phosphorous and over 50% of nitrogen pollution removed, and 1,800 “Rock Star” native grasses planted.
Latest From The Project
“This pilot project will be a testament to say, ‘Look what can be done. This is what we can make the whole Bay look like.”
