This post is a follow-up to the ACOE periodic scientist call on 4-14-15. Photos are from 4/11/15 and 4/13/15.
To summarize for the public, basically on 4-3-15, the ACOE’s pulse release schedule from Lake Okeechobee, that was up to 500 cfs (cubic feet per second) the previous week, had stopped and gone to 0 in order to facilitate bacteria testing by Martin County in St Lucie River waters.
On 4-10-15, as Lake Okeechobee’s height had gone down, the ACOE stopped releasing from Lake Okeechobee. Please see link for ACOe’s release schedule of past week:
Good news that the releases have stopped for now. Nice to see some blue green water. Thank you! For comparison, here is a photo from 3-18-15 at the southern tip of Sewall’s Point looking towards the St Lucie Inlet, while the ACOE was releasing.
