Lets start with the good news. Low levels found at Ft. De Soto, Pass A Grille, and Treasure Island. Now for the not so great news, Madeira Beach and Sand Key high concentrations; Indian Rocks, Clearwater Beach, and Honeymoon – medium, and Fred Howard had very low levels, but present.

We have a lot going on in Tampa Bay as shown by USF’s model attached. We will need to keep a close eye on any further migration up into the bay. USF is still predicting northern transport of surface waters and minimal net transport of subsurface waters over the next four days. Start with the X and follow the line to the end point for the 3.5 day trajectory.

Thanks to all for the hard work on the beaches and the Dunedin Causeway. Contractors had boats in the water in north county to clear what had come in with the tides.

Total dead fish to date 55.4 tons.
