Documenting the Discharges – 2023- to St Lucie River/Indian River Lagoon from Lake Okeechobee.
ACOE STOPS DISCHARGING AFTER 83 DAYS…
Date: Saturday, April 15, 2023
Time: Around 12:30 just before low tide
Pilot: Ed Lippisch
Location: Confluence of the St. Lucie River/Indian River Lagoon; Roosevelt Bridge area; S-80 St Lucie Canal; S-308 Port Mayaca at Lake Okeechobee.
Conditions: After months of almost no rain, Sewall’s Point received 5 inches last week-thus you see the really dark runoff along with discharges from Lake Okeechobee.
AFTER 83 DAYS, the ACOE, with the recommendation of the SFWMD, is halting discharges! Very good news.
