Million acre feet?

How much is a million acre feet?


Answer:

About the same amount of water that has discharged down the Caloosahatchee through W.P. Franklin S-79 structure to date (January 2010 to August 1st). That means this year (to date) already exceeds the last four “full year” flow totals.


The high-water measuring stick for the Caloosahatchee is 2005.

It tallied 2 million acre feet though August and ending the full year at almost 4 million acre feet …


Or about the equivalent of a Lake Okeechobee sized water barrel.
