Calusa Waterkeeper holds water crisis summit Monday

Experts say it is only a matter of time before blue-green algae comes creeping back into our waterways. On Monday, the Calusa Waterkeeper is holding its second summit of the summer to focus on the public health aspect.

The Calusa Waterkeeper is premiering the documentary, which centers around the water crisis in Southwest Florida. The movie discusses the public health risks, with interviews from doctors and experts, along with patients suffering from conditions they said are tied to harmful algal blooms.

Among those attending the summit are the doctors and experts interviewed in the documentary. The summit is open to the public and there will be an hour-long question and answer session, after the 40 minute film.

There are about 400 seats. But many people have already claimed tickets, leaving around 35 left as of Sunday. If you want to attend the summit, visit the Calusa Waterkeeper website for more information.
