Pollution Free is the way to be!
Stop Shallow Sewage Wells!

Please require the City of Marathon to use a deep well for disposal of sewage effluent.

Property values, our tourist industry, the health of all who use our nearshore waters are at risk. Our nearshore waters and our reefs are what make the Keys the Keys.

Marathon's shallow sewage wells:

  • Pollute our nearshore waters – the nursery for
    marine life.

  • Allow partially treated sewage effluent to travel
    through porous limestone to reach our coastal
    waters and reefs. 

  • Contribute to the deteriorating trends in Marathon's
    coastal waters, violating state water quality regulations
    and federal law.

  • Impact all of us in the Keys: "What happens in Marathon doesn't stay in Marathon!"

FOLKs is a group of concerned residents who want to preserve the low-density community character and improve the nearshore water quality of the Keys. We oppose adding 1300 more ROGOs (building allocations) because they undermine 30+ years of science-based and court-approved growth limitations for the Keys. Hurricane evacuation becomes more dangerous and everyday traffic unbearable. Our fragile environment cannot stand more development: the marine ecosystem is continuing to deteriorate even without additional development. We say NO to 1300 more ROGOs! And NO to shallow sewage wells!
