  • Corps approves request for increased Everglades’ flows

    The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers South Atlantic Division has approved a request from Florida Governor Rick Scott for deviation from its water control plan for a key Everglades reservoir located west of Miami. The deviation raises water levels in the L-29 canal, which runs along the north side of the Tamiami Trail (US Hwy 41) between Water Conservation Area 3 (WCA-3) and Everglades National Park. The WCA-3 water control plan limited those levels to elevation 7.5 feet (NGVD).
