Dear Rudy,I certainly agree with you that Decision Makers should pay more attention to untreated sewage or wastewater reaching coral reefs and causing diseases, the Florida Keys is only one of the many cases. Furthermore, it is also time to start to question why civilized people as We all humans are still use potable water to flush our toilets while the ecological, social and economic value of such relevant natural resource is rising up and more people in the world are in need of such a valuable scarce resource.Nohora Galvishttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ocjiEG2eK3wFundacion ICRI Colombia in Pro of Coral Reefshttp://icri-colombia.blogspot.com/http://icri-colombia.es.tl/

> In response to Gene's post, which he is correct BTW, but we do know that the disease that has nearly wiped out elkhorn coral in the Florida Keys and the bacterium associated with the disease is the same bacterium found in the human intestinal tract.  Serratia marcescens was determined to be the source and a coral snail the vector, transmitting it from coral to coral.  What are we going to do, dig up every septic tank in the keys?  Not likely, see

> we know this, is there anything being done?  when are all the keys going to have advanced waste water treatment?  whats the problem, economics, politics, is there a social science involvement?  Should homeowners care enough to get their leaking septic systems repaired?  you tell me!
