Citizen Petition to Clean All Freshwater Lakes

PETITION TEXT: READ AND SIGN BELOW!

STATEMENT OF FACTS:  Pinellas County Watersheds have created lakes by flooding privately owned land with POLLUTED WATER.  After flooding, the State of Florida owns the water and issues permits to  Pinellas County who is responsible for maintaining high water quality.  The land owner loses all control of the bottom land property but the County still collects real estate taxes on it.  The Pinellas County official “Use Code” describes their pollution input into our lakes as including SEWAGE DISPOSAL and SOLID WASTE.   Pinellas County now  says it cannot go on the lakes to remove pollutant induced vegetation because it is privately owned bottom land.   However BRING BACK OUR LAKES has a written statement from a Pinellas  County Government Official that states: The State has authority to issue permits over sovereign submerged lands for the purpose of improving water quality.

I hereby request Pinellas County Government to fulfill their moral responsibility and utilize the ECO HARVESTER to remove the vegetation from ALL PINELLAS COUNTY LAKES.
