Waste not, want not

As officials in Florida search for the cause of the massive algal blooms of Caulerpa brachypus appearing in coastal waters, attention has turned to the deep injection wells used to dispose of treated wastewater. According to this report from The Stuart News, Martin County's County Commissioner expressed concern that nutrients from the wells could be seeping into the lagoons and contributing to the algal growth. There's talk of banning the wells, but it is likely further studies will be done before making such a drastic decision.
