Cape Coral’s ‘bubble curtain’ under maintenance to combat blue-green algae

Starting tomorrow [March 15] until Friday [March 17], divers will be doing maintenance on the city’s “bubble curtain.” The curtain is below the water, where the Everest Canal connects with the Caloosahatchee by the Midpoint Bridge.

Boaters and others using the boat ramp at Horton Park will have to be patient.

The entry to the Everest Canal will close for up to 20 minutes at a time for the bubble curtain work.

After algae mats were seen in southwest Cape Coral earlier this month, some tell us they hope the city can get ahead of the problem.
