Stormwater, garbage fees are excellent investments

Instead it's taxing all the nasty stuff that we humans produce - fertilizers, pesticides, oil residues, etc. - that stormwater runoff carries into the St. Johns River and its tributaries.

One of the main factors in those massive algal blooms that can turn the river green from bank to bank is the river is overloaded with nutrients.

Better treatment of stormwater runoff will help reduce those nutrient.
