Update the "Days without a beach advisory sign" and reset to "ZERO"!
In the haven't I heard this before? department,
Good Grief! Our Miami-Dade County is allegedly a tourist based economy yet our County Officials have allowed our beaches to go to crap. How many days has it been since we were not under an advisory? At last check, there was an advisory on August 22nd.
We need ACTION, not officials who merely "sound alarms."
We have the local health department and media to sound the far-too-frequent-alarms. Action from our County Officials needs to follow the alarms - which to date has been Missing In Action.
Once again, I ask: Is it now required that we check both the weather and the pollution advisories before we decide to go to the beach? Is this our new normal?: Child: "Mommy, can we go to the beach today?" Parent: "Let's me check first to see if the toxin levels are acceptable." Note the use of the term "acceptable" rather than clean - yuck!
