To the editor:

Blue Water Hawaii: We just returned home to Cape Coral from visiting several islands in Hawaii. The water around all of the islands was so clean, blue and beautiful.

It saddened my wife and I to think that we moved to Southwest Florida in 2014 to enjoy the fishing, boating and beaches that we have here, only to find that the waters here are so often brown and polluted from the discharges from Lake Okeechobee, now full of algae and red tide. When friends and family visit here they ask "why is the water is so gross?"

The politicians act like they care but nothing seems to get done! The water from Lake O needs to flow south again like nature intended, to the Everglades. The Army Corps of Engineers created this problem, now they need to fix it!!!
