Even so, it is still overwhelmed by the January water event.
|This canal is still draining|
a month after the big rainfall
Not only is the gate fully open,
The excess water is flowing over-top and around the weir.
What shouldn't be happening is water also draining from the west side of the road into the canal. That's a fix we should be looking to stop. From an engineering perspective, why dump additional water into an already overfilled canal? From an environmental perspective, that is water that Fakahatchee would like to keep!
