Peak water has hit the swamp early,
But the big news is all the water slipping away to tide into the gulf.
|Freshwater is gushing out of the Caloosahatchee|
at nearly 10,000 cubic feet per second,
that’s 4 times the normal wet season peak.
“Is dilution really the solution to pollution,
And if so how long will it take (for the water to clear)?”
|This historical calendar is color coded|
to match the hydrograph above,
thus allowing you to see the data
decades into the past.
The only sure answer to that is the end of the wet season.
That will also be about the same time (i.e. start of the dry season) we start wishing we had found a way to hold on to all (or even just some) of that wasted water and sent it south where it used to go instead.
