Grab some popcorn!
Here’s a short video clip of that flowing well.
I was surprised to see its liquid arc
to have ebbed since I photographed it last
in October 2008.
Wetland water levels just upstream across the levee were almost 2 feet higher then than now.
The water release point – S12A – is currently closed,
And will remain so until the start of July:
It’s currently holding back 1.5 feet of water behind its gates (even if, to the side, there’s at least one “known trickle” of water percolating its way through the limrock levee).
You see, the water from the well is not of Everglades origin,
But rather on slow-motion train from somewhere up towards central Florida instead.
That 600 feet is the shortest
and quickest part of its journey …
(Just not as quick as it was).
