Pesticide & Herbicide Effect Not Tested or Heavily Regulated
Treasure Coast governments spray more than 100,000 gallons of weed- and bug-killing poisons yearly at sites where the runoff can flow into waterways, but with minimal regulation, there main guideline is “follow the label instructions.”

Agencies and manufactures insist the chemicals sprayed in marshes, canals and ditches are safe, but no one tests for residue or effects of the Indian River Lagoon and other waters, despite a 1997 test that showed pesticide pollution in the St. Lucie River.

State officials say chemical companies work with the EPA to craft safe instructions. However, letting chemical companies set guidelines eliminates any meaningful oversight and leaves environmental health in industry’s hands.

City Hauls in Over a Tonne of Invasive Goldfish - Goldfish are an invasive species in Alberta that can outcompete native fish if released into the wild. They’ve been in the isolated Lacombe Lake Park for decades, but were only spotted in Edgewater in 2015 and in Ted Hole last spring. That sparked concern, as those ponds had a sewer link to the Sturgeon River. The city broke out the pesticides on the advice of Alberta Environment after nets, electricity and winter’s icy grasp failed to eliminate the invaders.
