MEDIA ADVISORY: Rubio To Visit Florida’s Treasure Coast To Examine Algae Problem

Jun 30, 2016 | Press Releases

Washington, D.C. – Tomorrow, July 1, U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) will visit the Treasure Coast to view the Lake Okeechobee discharges through the St. Lucie Lock, St. Lucie River and the inlet/beaches, and observe the algal bloom during a waterway tour and ground tour. Following the tour and a meeting with elected officials to discuss these issues, Rubio will hold a media availability.

Just yesterday, Rubio urged the Army Corps of Engineers to take immediate action, including stopping discharges from Lake Okeechobee, to help Florida’s Treasure Coast, which is currently experiencing a harmful algal bloom. Moments ago, the Corps announced that it would decrease the discharges.

Media interested in covering this event must RSVP to Christina Mandreucci:
