About this graph: Like most of my charts, this one evolved over time. In its infancy, I just wanted a way of visualizing where the wetting front was “in the swamp,” not in feet above sea level. Thus, instead of plotting “zero” as sea level, I used the center of the cypress dome as my “zero” reference. Why there? It’s a good dividing line between drought (red) and various stages of flooding (orange, brown, green, blue, purple and black). Also embedded in the graph are the 30-year statistics, including the long-term median stage (dotted white line) and historic range (the shaded bands). Over time I added the trees, the swamp dioramas, wet/dry season band and other little touches to make it easier to read.

To help you feel "at home" and "more connected" to the water.
We didn't so much "reinvent the water cycle" as we gave it a reboot for our modern times.
We cover them all: The Districts, the estuaries, the aquifers and the watersheds. Also the rain, and the dew. Plus the humidity. Did I mention evaporation? The list goes on.
