  • Corps to continue Lake O release plan with minor adjustments

    The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Jacksonville District will continue its efforts to reduce water levels in Lake Okeechobee this dry season. The Corps plans to continue a push to send water south from the lake and maintain the current release rate to the Caloosahatchee River while making a slight adjustment in flows to the St. Lucie Canal to accommodate oyster spawning. Starting Saturday, March 16, the Corps will maintain the current pulse release to the Caloosahatchee estuary at a 7-day average rate of 1,800 cubic feet per second from the W.P. Franklin Lock and Dam (S-79). The Corps will reduce the flows to the St. Lucie estuary down to an average 7-day pulse release of 250 cubic feet per second as measured at the St. Lucie Lock and Dam (S-80). This decision will be reviewed again next week. Additional runoff from rain in the Caloosahatchee and St. Lucie basins could occasionally result in flows that exceed one or both targets.
