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 coastal waters and our reefs are what make the Keys the Keys.

Marathon's shallow sewage wells:

  • Pollute our coastal 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 Marathon's decades-long non-compliance
    with federal and state water quality laws and consistent
    deteriorating water quality trends.

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