Cape Coral officials to discuss bubble curtain permits at meeting today

CAPE CORAL, Fla. — A blue-green algae health alert is still in effect at Jaycee Park in Cape Coral.

Park visitors are greeted with a sign alerting them to the health alert. The toxic water isn’t safe to swim in and can even cause some respiratory symptoms for those on land.

Cape Coral officials are still waiting for permits to install bubble curtains in canals throughout the city. A meeting about the curtains was supposed to happen yesterday, August 3, but it was pushed back.

A city spokesperson told NBC2 that they were disappointed, but hope to get the permits soon.

The water quality memo that you’ll see today also mentions the US Army Corps of Engineers’ LOSOM plan. It details a plan for Lake Okeechobee water releases for the next 10 years. Lee County officials are threatening to sue if that plan doesn’t see major changes.

The Cape Coral City Council meets Wednesday at 4:30 p.m.
