Who said that?

Florida's quote of the day

| 10/13/2017

"What's worse than the color of the water is what's in the water."

-- Grant Gilmore, marine biologist

Coffee-colored water now spreads throughout the St. Lucie River into the southern Indian River Lagoon, out the St. Lucie Inlet and south several miles along the Atlantic Coast beaches.

The water is a combination of rainfall runoff from western Martin and St. Lucie counties and Lake Okeechobee discharges since Hurricane Irma struck in September.
