The problem with the L-28 …
You wont’ find it (adequately) described in the history books.
A narrated power point from 2017
That’s where Go Hydrology steps in to fill the void. You can surf the internet all day long and will (mostly) come up dry when it comes to any literature or relevant information on the modern-day boundary between the Everglades and the Big Cypress called the L-28. The reason? To be honest, I don’t know. It’s one of the most misunderstood and greatest barriers to the effort to restore the Everglades and Big Cypress.
Caveat: I’m not saying this presentation is the best. The power point dates back to 2017, and yes, I could have alternatively let it “collect digital dust” on my computer or just posted the “unnarrated” power point. But really what good would either have done? The better solution was to narrate the power point just as I presented it in 2017. It provides a nice history of the mysterious levee, and goes a long way to unraveling why it was built.
Listening to it in review, I probably should have rehearsed it a time or two, but there is no time like the present and really no excuse not to share, especially when it helps fill the void on a perhaps the Everglades and Big Cypress Swamp’s most mysterious levee and canal.

Misconception: “The L-28 is not the natural boundary between the Big Cypress and Everglades, rather a default line.” Bob says
