Balance or bias
More of the same for the Lake's main spillway

LORS is dead (i.e. the old regulation schedule),

Or about to die.

Green is good (i.e. the desired range)

In its place will step LOSOM

AKA Lake Okeechobee System Operation Manual.

In a nutshell: It will send more water down the Lake’s main release valve.

Or will it be too much of a good thing? Note: Can you see the major change that occurred with the implementation of LORS in 2008? Water is constantly flowing down the channel all months of the year. Presumably that (and more) will continue under LOSOM when it takes effect.

People on the west coast of south Florida often complain …

of an East Coast Bias when it comes to managing the Everglades water.

Or is this more a case of balancing competing needs?
