LEE COUNTY, Fla.-- The pilot program to remove blue-green algae from Lee County's waterways with the vendor Aecom is continuing in the area.

This project involves teams containing the algae and then sucking it up in a vacuum-like process. 

Thus far, Aecom has collected 250,000 gallons of algae slurry, processed 242,000 gallons, and cleaned 15 canals.
