[Research]  USF Models Track Effluent After Piney Point Pumping
Jacob Ogles, jacob.ogles@srqme.com

A computer model used to track red tide blooms will be employed to measure the environmental risk following a massive release of industrial wastewater from the Piney Point site into Tampa Bay.

The University of South Florida announced it will use two models developed through USF’s College of Marine Sciences to fully understand the impact of contaminants on the water body. USF researcher Bob Weisberg said through the use of sampling and careful forecasts for the dispersal of effluent water, the model can help predict where and when the nutrient-rich releases will have an impact on ecology.

“We’ve got a terrific team on this 24/7 and are committed to ensuring our science helps inform effective action to safeguard Tampa Bay and the Gulf of Mexico,” he said.

Tampa Bay Coastal Ocean Model has been in use to forecast Tampa Bay waters’ response to weather events, and was originally used to simulate response to Hurricane Irma. The West Florida Coastal Ocean Model, meanwhile, is used to track red tides based on the currents driven by winds, tides and deeper ocean forces. The models have now been adapted specifically to understand the water movement around Piney Point in Manatee County.

The work comes about a week and a half after a breach at a Piney Point water reservoir caused the evacuation of more than 300 homes and the emergency release of excess water from the site. Gov. Ron DeSantis declared a state of emergency on April 3. The Department of Environmental Protection and Army Corps of Engineers pumped more than 200 million gallons from a water stack on site into Port Manatee, a move necessary in order to reduce pressure on the breach so it could be repaired without risking a full collapse.

The water stacks date back to when a phosphate mine operated, but that worked stopped in the early 2000s. Current property owner HRK Holdings notified the county of the risk of a breach just shortly before one occurred. State officials have committed to hold the company financially accountable.

State officials stressed that much of the water dumped into the port in fact originated there, dating back to a dredging project. But the water does have high concentrations of phosphorus and nitrogen, bringing the risk of harmful algal blooms.

“We are starting to put together the pieces of the story,” said Tom Frazer, dean of the USF College of Marine Science, “and are grateful for all of the efforts on the part of our state and academic partners in this all-hands-on-deck effort.”

The models can be viewed online here.

[ShopTalk]  Presenting the Winners of Best Local Gift Store for Best of SRQ 2021
Brittany Mattie, brittany.mattie@srqme.com

Finding the right gift can be tough, but these local troves make it a little less of a chore and more of a fun treasure hunt for that special someone in mind. Scavengers Marketplace SRQ became the top-shelf contender in First by a long shot while The Bazaar on Apricot & Lime’s co-op in-door market had Second in the bag. Molly’s - A Chic and Unique Boutique speaks for itself in the name, securing Third while Elysian Fields rang up Fourth place. Honorable Mentions go to Pixie Dust Metaphysical Boutique, Shelly’s Gift and Christmas Boutique, Canned Ham Vintage and Artisan's World Marketplace who were close calls in the running. 

Scavengers, April Haley: It is always a treat to enter this store, even with two other stores, they still keep the merchandise exciting and fun and different from their other stores. You never know what treasure you will find or finds you. Whether your taste is vintage, boho, farmhouse, shabby chic, coastal, mid-century and everything in between you will find something perfect.

The Bazaar, Alyssa Martina: It’s your one-stop shop for all things cool. Not only can you find the coolest one-of-a-kind items, but you can also find items that are not and then turn them into one-of-a-kind. Like my Gypsy Gardner planner – Teresa added black and white Bruce Springsteen images to my cover that was already beautiful enough thanks to her artwork. One day, I found a vintage Playboy magazine from 1960 for $3 that came from Barbara Winners booth Creative Hands. I’m a huge music fan, so the Box’s booth filled with guitar pick earrings is my favorite. Also, the fact that I can hear live music while I shop is probably what puts The Bazaar at the top of my list of favorite places to shop.

The Bazaar, Jenny Townsend: The Bazaar has the most unique and great gifts. They offer you the opportunity to support 30 small businesses. After shopping, you can enjoy lunch in the courtyard. 

Molly’s, Moira Garcia: Their superior customer service, stylish decor, unique gifts/clothes, great shoe selection and they're an impeccably clean store. I fully enjoy shopping there. I always find something special.

[ASID FL West Coast Chapter]  Ahead of the Trend

With the overall economic outlook being positive for 2021 and 2022, spending has sustained the interior design industry overall, according to ASID research published in their Outlook and State of Interior Design for 2021. ASID sees long-lasting trends in understanding people and businesses as well as health, safety and welfare becoming top priorities. The pandemic has re-emphasized the need for interior designers to be leaders in these key trends.

How does a designer lead in the health trend when working with clients? It’s more than just about choosing the right color, providing comfort with furnishings and ensuring client happiness with specifications –– it’s about specifying products that can keep clients healthier. Manufacturers are using low-to-no VOC’s (volatile organic chemicals) in their products. Paint companies and carpet manufacturers and some furniture manufacturers have led the way to ‘healthier’ products that adults and children are using and breathing in their homes. Ask your ASID interior designer for more information.

How does a designer lead in the safety trend? This trend is about choosing products with safety in mind. Common sense tells us that glass coffee tables are not such a good idea with small children in the household, area rugs represent tripping hazards in a senior center. Understanding people’s specific needs is the key to helping them live in a safer environment. How clients live in their homes has become more important with so much more time being spent in the house. A good designer will ask you this question.

And lastly, how does a designer lead in the welfare or wellness trend? Wellness in your home or business is called Biophilic Design. This design concept is our connection to our natural environment. By using sustainable earth friendly materials, the client can reduce stress and expedite healing along with im- proving their well-being and cognition. Some of these materials include bamboo, cork, FSC certified wood, the use of natural patterns, colors found in nature, live plants and even faux silk plants.
