High but not “that high”

The Caloosahatchee spilled over 2.5 million acres of water into the Gulf in 2016.

That water had two sources: (1) releases from Lake O and (2) runoff from the river’s watershed.

Comparison of water levels in
Lake O during other high-release
flood years of note

But still, for that much water to flow …

Lake levels must have been high.

Compared to a drought year, yes …

But to similar “high flow” years, i.e. greater than 2.5 million acres, the answer is no.
