Let's face it … The water in the Bimini Basin was a cesspool prior to our Red Tide debacle yet our city council insists on dumping more money into this project as they seem to think that they can convince a restaurant or two to invest in this area with open dining on the water. I'm NOT convinced that this will ever happen in the Bimini Basin.

Our local Govt. must take blame as well. It is not the Feds or the state who dumped the fecal matter in the waters at the Yacht Club and Bimini Basin. Non treated sewage from large marinas leaking septic tanks as well as the public system has destroyed our water ways. The water in nearly all the canals is unfit to swim in and one risks infection any time they come in contact with our waters if you have an open wound. The blue green algae thrived in our canals and river front because it is full the same nutrients that fed the growth in Lake O. In the Cities hast to build on every square inch of water front we have no buffer to help protect our waterways. Run off from everywhere flows directly into the canals. Over development on our waterfront is the reason for our poor water The city must rethink its plans for the Bimini Basin as well as the 7 islands. These areas need to remain green not over developed with high rise, multi family and large marinas. Give us and our waterways a break
