Regulate Fertilizer Use in Miami Dade County

The Surfrider Miami Chapter is asking Miami Dade County Commissioners and Mayor to regulate fertilizer use in Miami Dade County.

For years, the Miami Chapter has advocated for fertilizer restrictions to reduce the flow of nutrients into Biscayne Bay and other local waterways. Biscayne Bay suffers from high nutrient levels which has led to devastating algal blooms and fishkills in the past. The chapter is asking Miami Dade County commissioners to take immediate and necessary action to help save Biscayne Bay. 

On April 20th, the County unanimously passed the fertilizer ordinance. Sending a strong message to all that the protection of Biscayne Bay is a priority to community leaders in South Florida.
