FORT MYERS, Fla. – A 13-year-old boy focuses his science fair project on the water quality crisis in Southwest Florida.
Ashton Brewster did the project on Lake Okeechobee after he couldn’t catch any fish near his home.
His family lives along the Caloosahatchee River with his family in Fort Myers.
Ashton put the project together 3 years ago, around the time Lake O was releasing water.
His project revolved around how the discharges polluted the water killing off the seagrass.
