Pre rain-driven

Lake Okeechobee didn't overflow directly ...

into the Big Cypress Swamp.

Deep Lake is five times
deeper thank Lake Okeechobee


But the higher groundwater table it supported did feed surface water seeps and sloughs and strands that eventually found their way south into the swamp.

The swamp wasn't always just rain-driven you know!
