Cape Coral installing more bubble curtains to keep toxic blue-green algae at bay

New bubble curtains will soon go into canals in Cape Coral to keep toxic blue-green algae at bay.

A generator will send power three lines that dip into the water and bring bubbles to the surface in Mandolin Canal.

We could see some specks gunk moving through the canal Wednesday.

The city has already tested the curtain, and everything is ready to go. Diving gear needs to be purchased, and the system needs to be cleaned. Then, the permit applications for all 10 bubble curtains need to be approved.
