Only for the Hardcore! SFWMD February 19, 2020 Ecological Conditions Report
As I mentioned in a recent blog post, when I read the weekly SFWMD Ecological Report, I “start with the end in mind.” Reading the recommendation at the end of the thirty plus page weekly document gives me a hook to keep in mind while reading everything else. I read, or at least peruse, this document because I want to know not just about the St Lucie, my hometown, but the entire Everglades System, especially my friends the animals.
This just came out, so I am sharing it now with you! There is a lot of science, but also pictures too! Nonetheless, this post is for the hardcore student of the St Lucie River and Entire Everglades System! Give it a try!

Images below are screenshots from report with final recommendation and images that struck me first. Included is a helpful image showing rough boundary of SFMWD, Everglades National Park, & Water Conservation Areas for understanding.

Thank you Jacqui. This was very informational! I truly hope you, John Mitnick and others can help reduce the LOSOM/LORS 2008 band on June 1st by about 0.5′ to 11.0′-12.0′ (Fig. 2). We on the West Coast do not want or need any cyanobacteria laden discharges during the summer wet season for human health & safety reasons. Perhaps this reduced band for June 1st can be a temporary one and can be restored after the EAA reservoir & STA, the West Coast reservoir & STA and the East Coast reservoir & STA are fully operational.
Mike I am working hard to understand it all. Yes. I will keep posting and do my best.
