More algae spotted in the Caloosahatchee

Published: Updated:

Just when we thought we were in the clear, algae has returned to some bodies of water here in Southwest Florida.

The Caloosahatchee river is seeing remnants of algae traveling back towards Lee County.

The green gunk found it’s way to Fort Denaud on Monday and as of Thursday, it is showing up in Alva, traveling 20 miles in just 3 days.

The unwanted algae is a sore site to see following the damage it caused over the summer months and early fall.

And now it’s starting to bloom earlier than normal.
