And here’s another shot at the same gate, from Tamiami Trail, looking north.
The sliver of green in the background is the southern end of Water Conservation Area 3A. Water depths in its sloughs are currently 3.5 feet deep.

is in the background
That’s why so much water is moving through the gate.
Granted, the gates are so long (six of them per structure) and the channel deep is deep so to the visual eye it looks rather slow.
