US Rep. Brian Mast to Army Corps of Engineers: Come swim in St. Lucie River with algae

U.S. Rep. Brian Mast has invited the Army Corps of Engineers to swim in the St. Lucie River’s “increasingly toxic water.”

The Palm City Republican called for Lake Okeechobee discharges east to the St. Lucie River and west to the Caloosahatchee River to end immediately, he wrote in a letter Thursday to Lt. Gen. Todd T. Semonite, the Corps’ commanding general.

“You are leaving our community to die,” Mast told Semonite, referring to the lake’s polluted freshwater discharges that carry toxic algae to the St. Lucie River.

“If you think this is hyperbole,” Mast continued, “then I’m extending an open invitation to the leadership team at the Army Corps to stand by your policy: Come to Stuart, Florida, for a swim in our increasingly toxic water. 

“If you feel the water is acceptable for our children to play in, for us to fish in and for our endangered animals to live in, then it should be good enough for you to swim in also.”
