Have you ever wondered how much rain recently fell in your community? Or if the gates on a nearby canal are open? Or how high the water level is in Lake Okeechobee? The South Florida Water Management District can answer these questions and many others using data collected by an extensive monitoring system maintained throughout the 16 counties we serve. In this real-time monitoring network, you can check to see water levels in lakes, canals and waterways throughout the region by selecting Water Conditions. You can even find out if coastal gates and other water control structures are open or closed.
In addition, our extensive environmental database – called DBHYDRO – allows you to search for historical or up-to-date surface and groundwater information, as well as meteorlogic, hydrogeologic and water quality data for the South Florida Water Management District's region.
