Water stage is at its highest level in years in WCA1 (Loxahatchee).
That could have something to do with 10 inches of direct rain over the refuge over the past 30 days.
That has WCA1 on the verge of a rare early fall rise into Zone A1, i.e. stage has to rise very high to make into the upper zone this time of year. Current stage is about a half a foot higher than WCA1's long-term average for mid October.
Meanwhile, down south WCA3 is about a half foot below its long-term average for mid October.
Usually the deep water issue is down there.
