USA Today: Michael Jordan-owned golf course pollutes St. Lucie River in violation of Florida rules

A golf course near Hobe Sound partially owned by basketball legend Michael Jordan is dirtying the South Fork of the St. Lucie River, a state official said Friday.

Construction at the golf course being built on 226 acres east of Interstate 95 and north of Bridge Road is putting unacceptable levels of sediment in the upper reaches of the river, an aerial survey of the site revealed Friday afternoon, said Randy Smith, a spokesman for the South Florida Water Management District.
