SFWMD Reopening S-193 Navigation Lock on Lake Okeechobee
Aug. 9, 2019
For boaters navigating to and from Lake Okeechobee, the South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) has reopened the S-193 lock seven days a week. The lock had been closed during the week to prevent injury to boaters, damage to boats, or lock damage that could occur if boats pass through this structure when water levels are not between the designated safety limits.
The lock is open for operation seven days a week and will remain open as long as conditions are safe. To get the latest information on navigation through SFWMD structures and waterways, visit www.sfwmd.gov/navigation.
