  • Corps continues flows from Lake O, supports firefighting in Everglades National Park

    The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Jacksonville District will continue flows from the W.P. Franklin Lock and Dam (S-79) to the Caloosahatchee estuary at a 7-day average rate of 457 cubic feet per second (cfs). Flows to the St. Lucie estuary remain at zero cfs as measured at the St. Lucie Lock and Dam (S-80). Releases are made in a pulse pattern which begin on Saturday. In addition, our partners at the South Florida Water Management District have coordinated with the Corps as they mobilize pumps and modify water management operations to help control a wildfire in Everglades National Park.
