Something needs to be done. However, the Clean Water Act (CWA), as interpreted by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), does not currently address any of the threatening discharges. Even though the CWA requires a permit to discharge “any pollutant to navigable waters from any point source,” the EPA’s water transfer rule explains that only the initial release of a pollutant into U.S. navigable waters, as a whole, requires a permit. Once in the water, the unmodified transfer of polluted water through a system of dikes does not require a permit, according to EPA. In Friends of the Everglades v. SFWMD, the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals upheld the EPA’s approach.
Because of the desalinization and pollution, local oyster reefs in the Indian River Lagoon have lost around 350 acres. Their current mortality rate is at ninety-nine percent. In addition, seagrass beds have reached critical levels—nine parts to five parts per thousand acres. Further, the Johnson’s Seagrass, which is a threatened species that had “eighty percent recovery last year,” has returned to zero percent recovery. Local health departments warn members of the public against contacting the water due to high toxicity and blue-green algae levels. Finally, the region has witnessed a “record number of dead dolphins, dead manatees, and dead pelicans.
