1. This is misleading

All of the toxic water is going into Tampa Bay. Some of it, 35 million gallons, is being pumped into the bay. The remainder of the 480 million gallons is leaking into the bay. https://apnews.com/article/florida-dismisses-2nd-breach-risk-wastewater-reservoir-85cd2883ebf8bbef27e74dab73788458

In the article it is not mentioned that the toxic water is going into the bay, but the captions on the photos describe it. The video on top shows the area well enough, the section with the photos is further down.

. The shoreline along Tampa Bay, just north of Port Manatee and Piney Point. Millions of gallons of wastewater are being pumped into Tampa Bay at Port Manatee in an effort to avoid a catastrophic failure of a containment wall at Piney Point.
.This still image from video shows the breach in the containment wall of the Piney Point reservoir. United States Congressman Vern Buchanan toured Piney Point Monday, Apr. 5, 2021, getting a look at the breach in the containment wall, the pumping outflow and Port Manatee where the wastewater is being pumped into Tampa Bay.

ETA: the water is not human or animal waste, it is the pollutants from phosphate mining.
