Delray Outfall Sewage Stopped
For 45 years, 14 million-gallons-a-day of partially treated sewage was discharged one mile offshore of Delray Beach, FL and onto a coral reef. The nutrient pollution caused algae blooms and killed coral. Lead by Reef Rescue, recreational scuba divers fought for 6 years to shut down the pipe. On April 1, 2009, the outfall finally went offline. A victory for Reef Rescue supporters. Learn more about Reef Rescue, visit: http:// www.reef-rescue.org.
