St. Johns River/Everglades/Black hills/Sinkholes

Sugar is not native to Florida;
therefore, it is harmful to
native plants, fish and animals!

The Everglades of Florida, like
Black hills of South Dakota,
have a particular nature,
not found anywhere else
on Mother Earth.
Why should Floridians
in north and central Florida be worried about 'Algae Bloom' in

Lake Okeechobee and the Indian River lagoon?
Lake Okeechobee is a large Sinkhole.
Pollution from the Sugar Companies in the Everglades
is forced into rivers that flow into Lake Okeechobee.
Lake Okeechobee flows to the Indian River Lagoon.
The Indian River Lagoon flows into the St. Johns River.
Florida’s St. Johns River flows north
from the Indian River to northeast Florida
and into the Atlantic Ocean at the border of Georgia.

Florida and some of Georgia
gets our drinking water
resting under this polluted water!
So, follow the river flow from the US's Sugar polluted water.

Governor, Jeb Bush,
Governor Rick Scott
Senator Marco Rubio's
best paychecks
come from those Sugar Companies
and this is what keeps
the polluting of our water!
The US Sugar Corporation is a
large privately owned agricultural business based in Clewiston, Florida
flows into rivers that flow into Lake Okeechobee and north to the ocean.

Sugar refining 
purifies the raw sugar.
It is first mixed with heavy syrup and then centrifuged in a process called "affixation".
Its purpose is to wash away the sugar crystals' outer coating, which is less pure than the crystal interior.
The remaining sugar is then dissolved to make syrup, about 60 percent solids by weight.
The sugar solution is clarified by the addition of phosphoric acid and calcium hydroxide, which combine to precipitate calcium phosphate.
The calcium phosphate particles entrap some impurities
and absorb others, and then float to the top of the tank,
where it can be skimmed off.
An alternative to this "phosphatation" technique is "carbonatation",
which is similar, but uses carbon dioxide 
and calcium hydroxide to produce a calcium carbonate precipitate.
Currently, sugarcane is planted on
approximately 440,000 acres in the
Everglades Agricultural Area (EAA),
making it the most extensively grown row crop in Florida.
Production is primarily on land along or near the southern half of Lake Okeechobee.
Most of the production is in Palm Beach County, but sugarcane is also grown in Hendry, Glades and Martin counties.
The Florida sugar industry employs over 14,000 people has an
annual income over $800 million,
and a total economic value
(from direct and indirect effects)
of over $2 billion.
