Brendan Smith started this petition to Senator Marco Rubio and

Recently there has been the approval to dump phosphorous directly into the Tampa Bay. The Location is Manatee County at Port Manatee. This is not just any waste, it is phosphorus. The Phosphorus is coming from an old phosphorus mine, and is a substance that plays a huge roll in red tide and algae blooms. Also keep in mind that this sludge is also radioactive. 300 residents have already been evacuated from their homes. The dump of the radioactive waste has already begun, we must try an stop this from getting any worse. The future of ALL Tampa Bay marine life is at risk. All inland features like sea grass flats, mangroves, fish and many other species will be affected! Considering the Clean Water Act of 1972, a FEDERAL law, there should have never been a thought to dump the waste directly into the bay. This is against the Tampa Bay Areas morals and wants, and from this it will cost us our beaches, our beautiful water ways, the thrill of seeing manatees, dolphins and so much more. An entire ecosystem will be destroyed. And for that we will only pay a greater price. We have a lot to lose and we must act quick! Please help the Bay Area save out waters! Join our movement to protect our waterways! Please take action and email or write the political figures that we believe will save a place that many of us have called home for many years and decades. SAVE THE BAY!!
