The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Jacksonville District announces the 14-day pulse release schedule for water releases from Lake Okeechobee, scheduled to resume on Friday.

The pulses will achieve a 14-day average of 3,000 cubic feet per second (cfs) from Moore Haven Lock & Dam (S-77) and 1,800 cfs from St. Lucie Lock &Dam (S-80). The pulse patterns include 4 days of no releases to the Caloosahatchee and 3 days of no releases to the St Lucie. Additional runoff from rain in the St. Lucie basin could occasionally result in flows that exceed the target.
