EP9 - Flood Your Commissioners with Collin Schladweiler

While U.S. politicians waver over climate change predictions and policy, Miami continues to experience the adverse effects of sea level rise including beach erosion, real estate flooding, and the imminent compromise of its low-lying coastal nuclear power plant at Turkey Point. But there’s another effect of climate change people aren’t talking about. Along with Miami Waterkeeper’s Water Quality Monitoring Team, Collin Schladweiler tests Miami-Dade County’s waterways for saltwater intrusion and bacteria leaking out of the region’s sewage systems and septic tanks due to the rising water table -- likely causing the toxic algal plumes infesting local canals and beaches. As South Florida’s water-related problems surmount, Collin and the rest of Miami Waterkeeper stay ahead of them, and they need you to show up to local government meetings to demand more action on the issue.
