There’s nothing quaint about the headwaters of the Everglades:
The farther upstream you go the bigger the structures grow.
|Can you see the structure in the distance?|

of Lake Okeechobee’s 143-mile
perimeter levee looking south
|Here’s a closer look as seen|

|Here’s a look on the tail water side of the S-351 structure, feeding water towards West Palm Beach, and the S-2 pump station beside it.|
Here’s some views of the structure that sends water from Lake Okeechobee towards West Palm Beach and Water Conservation Area 1. Water was actually flowing out of the S-351 on Monday June 9th when I took the photo. And there was a big line of wet season rain clouds to the south in the Everglades on that same day as well.
Can you see the cloud formation in the top photo?
|The haze in the background (to the south) was smoke|
from a wildfire in Water Conservation Area 3A
BTW: The water goes through a filter marsh before it enters the Everglades.
