STUART, Fla. - Florida Congressman Brian Mast has introduced legislation aimed at making the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers to notify communities affected by discharges of water contaminated by toxins. The Toxic Health Threat Warning Act would require tests to determine if discharged water contains blue-green algae. If that water is contaminated, the Corp would need to notify the public, local governments before releasing the water.
