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 as well as updates on the storage capacity of major storage areas.
To help reduce freshwater releases to South Florida's estuaries during the 2014 wet season, South Florida Water Management District operations moved approximately 339 billion gallons of water south from Lake Okeechobee through four water control structures from Nov. 1, 2013, through Oct. 31, 2014 – that's equal to 782,367 football fields filled with 1 foot of water. This action is part of an effort to reduce Lake Okeechobee releases to the east and west coastal estuaries.
With an increased potential for above-average rainfall this winter, the District is continuing to move water south to help favorably position Lake Okeechobee's water level before the 2015 rainy season starts. For weekly updates on how much water is being moved south, visit www.sfwmd.gov/movingwatersouth.
Lobbyists are reminded that registration with the South Florida Water Management District expires December 31 each year. If you wish to register for 2015, please visit the Open Government web page, download and fill out the required form and submit it to the SFWMD Clerk's Office.
