NBC2 IS INVESTIGATING A STORY THAT EFFECTS EVERY SINGLE PERSON IN SOUTHWEST FLORIDA -- OUR WATER QUALITY --

WE ALL REMEMBER WHAT THE SHORE LOOKED LIKE DURING THE RAINY SEASON LAST YEAR.

IT WAS BROWN AND MURKY, BECAUSE OF FRESH WATER BEING RELEASED FROM LAKE OKACHOBEE --

SOME PROJECTS ARE BEING DONE THAT ARE SUPPOSED TO FIX THE PROBLEM --

BUT WE WANTED TO KNOW -- IS IT ENOUGH?

NBC2'S CLIFTON FRENCH HAS BEEN ASKING THE TOUGH QUESTIONS --

CLIFF, WHAT DID YOU FIND OUT? Return to index of stories...


LAKE O BIG PICTURE-PLASMA


IT'S A COMPLICATED ISSUE THAT'S BEING TACKLED FROM MANY ANGLES --

BUT SOME EXPERTS I TALKED TO SAY OUR LAWMAKERS ARE MISSING THE TARGET -- AVOIDING THE ONLY SOLUTION, WASTING TIME, AND YOUR TAX DOLLARS. Return to index of stories...


LAKE O BIG PICTURE-PKG


IT'S THE LIFE LINE OF OUR ECONOMY --

BUT OUR PRISTINE BEACHES ARE BEING THREATENED --

WHEN LAKE OKACHOBEE GETS TOO FULL -- FRESH WATER IS RELEASED, FLOWING DOWN THE CALOOSHATCHEE RIVER, RIGHT INTO THE GULF --

TO STOP THE PROBLEMS, GOVERNOR RICK SCOTT AND THE FLORIDA LEGISLATURE ARE TACKLING SEVERAL PROJECTS --

Rick Scott

"We have been funding everglades restoration, 130 million dollars this year."

ONE OF THOSE PROJECTS -- 90 MILLION DOLLARS ON A US41 BRIDGE -- ALLOWING WATER FROM THE LAKE TO FLOW SOUTH.

Ray Judah

"That's a plus, but again it's insignificant in terms of relieving the massive releases from lake okachobee."

THAT'S RAY JUDAH, FOMER COUNTY COMMISSIONER, NOW THE COORDINATOR WITH THE FLORIDA COSTAL AND OCEAN COALITION.

HE SAYS THE BRIDGE IS GREAT -- THERE'S JUST ONE PROBLEM --

"What we need to do is make sure we have a way to have the water flow from the lake, under the bridge to everglades national park."

SITTING BETWEEN THE LAKE AND THE BRIDGE -- SUGAR CANE FIELDS ON 50-THOUSAND ACRES OF LAND JUDAH SAYS NEEDS TO USED TO MOVE THAT WATER SOUTH --

JUDAH SAYS UNTIL THAT CAN BE DONE -- EVERYTHING ELSE IS A WASTE OF MONEY AND TIME.

"Without that extra land for the necessary storage, treatment and movement south, we will continue to have adverse impacts to our estuaries."

IT'S A PROJECT THAT TALKED ABOUT SEVERAL YEARS AGO BUT WAS PUT ON HOLD DURING THE GREAT RECESSION. JUDAH AND OTHERS HAVE STILL BEEN PUSHING FOR IT, BUT STATE AND FEDERAL LAWMAKERS HAVE YET TO TAKE ACTION.

AND, MANY PEOPLE LIVING IN THOSE TOWNS DEPENDENT ON THOSE SUGAR FIELDS DON'T THINK IT'S A GOOD IDEA. Return to index of stories...


LAKE O BIG PICTURE-PLASMA


THERE'S ALSO TALK OF A RESERVOIR, CALLED THE C-43 RESERVOIR THAT WOULD HOLD 55-BILLION GALLONS OF WATER --

NETFLIX LATEST-OC-VO


ANOTHER NEW STORY OUR OVERNIGHT TEAM FOUND ---

IT LOOKS LIKE NETFLIX'S RECENT CONNECTION DEAL WITH COMCAST IS PAYING OFF FOR CUSTOMERS.

NETFLIX JUST REPORTED STREAMING SPEEDS FOR COMCAST USERS WATCHING NETFLIX JUMPED NEARLY 50-PERCENT LAST MONTH.

THE JUMP COMES AFTER NETFLIX RELUCTANTLY AGREED TO START PAYING AN UNDISCLOSED FEE TO COMCAST TO STREAM ITS VIDEOS DIRECTLY.

BEFORE THAT, NETFLIX USED THIRD PARTIES TO DELIVER TRAFFIC TO COMCAST.

EVEN AFTER THE DEAL WAS REACHED IN FEBRUARY, NETFLIX HAS BEEN CRITICAL OF BIG PROVIDERS LIKE COMCAST FOR CHARGING THEM TO INCREASE SPEEDS.

CABLE COMPANIES ARGUE IT'S ONLY FAIR THAT NETFLIX SHOULD HELP FOOT THE BILL FOR DELIVERING ITS CONTENT. Return to index of stories...
