Since  March 2002 Gulf Stream Reef, Boynton Beach, Florida has been plagued 
by a  Lyngbya bloom. This reef lies immediately down current from the Delray 
Beach  ocean outfall. Other coral reef tracts in the area both up current and 
farther  down current have remained free from the Lyngbya  bloom. 
The  current NPDES permit for the outfall has no requirement to limit the 
amount of  nutrients discharged, nor does the permit require any onsite 
monitoring to  assess the impact of the discharge on the surrounding biological  
Palm Beach  County Reef Rescue has documented the bloom and generated several 
reports  detailing our investigations (PDF versions are available on our web 
site).  See what you can do to help by visiting Reef Rescue @:
