No easy solutions exist for summertime algae outbreaks that suck oxygen out of two Florida rivers and cover parts of them with rancid green slime – a man-made problem that dates back more than a century.
Business interests drained much of the Everglades for development from the late 1800s into the 1900s with government acquiescence. Water that once naturally flowed south from Lake Okeechobee into the Everglades now flows via manmade diversions westward to the Caloosahatchee River and eastward to the St. Lucie River.
Development along the lake has brought phosphorous- and nitrogen-laced human waste, animal waste and fertilizer to its shoreline, and when seasonally heavy rains wash these pollutants into the lake, algae feed on them and reproduce rapidly.

HKS Architects in September will deliver to the City of St. Petersburg alternative master plans for development of an 85-acre site, one that includes – and another that excludes — the home field of Major League Baseball’s Tampa Bay Rays.
The Tampa Bay Rays team is considering alternatives to its home field at Tropicana Field, also known as the Trop, an enclosed ball park with a bubble-top roof near Interstate 275 in St. Petersburg.
The enclosed stadium has been the home field of the Rays since their inception in 1989.
