Episode 3:

The Science of Lake Okeechobee

By connecting with leading independent scientists Dr. Paul Gray and Dr. Gary Goforth – this episode explains the concerns associated with the ecology and pollution of Florida’s Lake Okeechobee. As the “liquid heart” of Florida, Lake O has a direct influence on water quality throughout all of South Florida – home to 8.1 million people and the core of Florida’s massive tourism industry. This episode illustrates the complex man-made pollution problems being faced and attempts to explain them in a way that all Floridians and visitors can understand.
