Citizens for Clean Water Rally at Phipps Park, Stuart Florida

Last year, at Structure S-80 on the C-44 Canal known as the ”locks” the citizens of Martin and St. Lucie Counties gathered in protest of the continuing unnatural discharges of polluted water from Okeechobee Lake to protect the sugar crop.
