The Clean Water Coalition invites you to the Emerson Center on March 1st at 7 pm to hear Allen Stewart, Biologist and Engineer, with 40 years of experience designing and operating water restoration facilities in Florida.
The typical approach to get rid of invasive plants that can clog our waterways is to use toxic herbicides to kill plants in and around the water. The broadcast spraying of herbicides destroys ecosystems critical to the survival of fish, birds and other animals. The dead plants release their nutrients into the water causing more pollution and muck buildup. These excess nutrients fuel algae blooms and find their way to our coastlines.
Join us to learn more about Mr. Stewart’s unique approach that uses the plants to take up excess nutrients and remove them from the water, reducing the need for toxic herbicides and leaving our waterways cleaner and healthier.
To learn more about one possible solution to pollution join us at 7 pm on March 1st at the Emerson Center, 1590 27th Ave., Vero Beach. This program is sponsored by the Clean Water Coalition of Indian River County and is open to the public free of charge.
