Water damage is a terrible thing to go through; however, it helps to know that Plumbers FL Services will be there quickly and efficiently when needed. Christian and Carlos make a great team. They are friendly, polite, and hard working. They are a credit to the Plumbers FL, and I’m glad they were here to help me. Thank you Christian and Carlos and the Plumbers FL crew. I always call Plumbers FL, and recommend their services to neighbors and friends. Thank you.
We have used Plumbers Florida many times in the past. The technicians are always pleasant, professional and do outstanding work. Our last experience was with William who went above and beyond our expectations. His communication skills and advise were spot on. As well as just a really, really nice man!!!
Palm Beach, Broward and Miami-Dade Counties in Southeast Florida discharge nearly 400 million gallons a day of wastewater into the Atlantic Ocean — sewage not fully treated for surface water discharging in that it includes high levels of nutrients and unflitered parasiites like Cryptosporidium and Giardia.

Implementation of Chapter 2008-232, Laws of Florida
Domestic Wastewater Ocean Outfalls
2010 Annual Report, June 10, 2010 (19 pages)
(Excerpt) Chapter 2008-232, Laws of Florida, established the Leah Schad Memorial Ocean Outfall Program (the Act) that prohibits the construction of new domestic wastewater ocean outfalls, sets out a timeline for the elimination of existing domestic wastewater ocean outfalls by 2025, and requires that a majority of the wastewater previously discharged be beneficially reused.
The Act requires the Department of Environmental Protection (Department) to submit a progress report no later than July 1, 2010, and every five years thereafter to the Governor, the President of the Senate, and the Speaker of the House of Representatives summarizing progress to date, including the increased amounts of reclaimed water provided and potable water offsets achieved, and identifying any obstacles to continued progress, including all instances of substantial noncompliance.
Since 1964, 14 million-gallons-a-day of partially treated sewage was discharged one mile offshore of Delray Beach, FL and onto a coral reef — April 1, 2009, the outfall finally went offline.

12/28/2010 – (Example of cleaning up pollution, creating jobs and, also, making money) http://coalgeology.com/settlement-with-northeast-ohio-sewer-district-to-eliminate-or-treat-five-billion-gallons-of-sewage/10024/ (Excerpt) The Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District discharges nearly five billion gallons of untreated, raw sewage approximately 3,000 to 4,000 times per year into Lake Erie and nearby rivers. The settlement will require the sewer district to spend approximately billion to install pollution controls, including the construction of seven tunnel systems ranging from two to five miles in length that will reduce the discharges of untreated, raw sewage to approximately 537 million gallons per year. The sewer district estimates that this investment will lead to more than 30,000 jobs in the Cleveland area and return .63 for every .00 invested.
