Not that the water is jumping up and down …
But the charts say it loud and clear:
Annual discharge under the Tamiami Trail
Northeast Shark River Slough is now leading the way on water flowing south under the trail. As for its competition, the other three reaches are the S12s, East Big Cypress National Preserve and West Big Cypress National Preserve. On the bar chart, you can see how annual discharge through the new bridges has incrementally increased over the past few years. And on the line chart, you can see how Northeast Shark River Slough out-discharged the other three reaches this year. Great job NE Shark River Slough, and great job everyone in the distance and recent past who helped make it happen. It’s quite a big team.
