Florida To Dump Sewage On More Sections Of Coral Reef System

LAKE WORTH - As part of a new reverse osmosis system to purify drinking water, the city has proposed flushing 4 million gallons of treated effluent a day into the ocean through an old, 92-foot-deep outfall pipe that opens on the eastern side of Horseshoe Reef. Once used to dump sewage into the ocean, the 30-inch pipe has lain idle for years. Palm Beach Post
