WEEKLY WEB TRACKER: Moving Lake Okeechobee Water South
A new online interactive map tracks the weekly amount and movement of water south out of Lake Okeechobee through four water control structures, as well as provides updates on the capacity of major storage areas.
With an increased potential for above-average rainfall this winter, South Florida Water Management District operations staff is moving water south from Lake Okeechobee to help reduce freshwater releases to coastal estuaries and favorably position the lake for the start of the 2015 wet season. For weekly updates, visit www.sfwmd.gov/movingwatersouth.
2014 Wet Season Operations During the 2014 wet season, District operations moved approximately 339 billion gallons of water south from Lake Okeechobee from Nov. 1, 2013, through Oct. 31, 2014 – that's equal to 782,367 football fields filled with 1 foot of water. This action was part of a wider effort to reduce lake releases to the east and west coastal estuaries.
