River of grass fed swamp

Water is gushing into Big Cypress Nat'l Preserve across the L-28.

To be exact, I counted 12 locations.

(1) S-12A looking southeast
Mile 0

(2) S-343B looking southwest
(That's the Tamiami Trail to the left)
Mile 1

(3) S-343A looking West
Mile 2

(4) First of four temporary
pumps, looking North
Mile 4

(5) Second of four temporary 
pumps, looking North
Mile 4

(6-8) Third and fourth of four temporary pumps
and the S-344, looking North
Mile 12

(6-8) Same spot as above
looking Southwest
Mile 12

(9) First of three breaks in the tieback
looking Northwest (the water in the gaps
flows from right left)
Mile 17

(10) Middle of three breaks 
in tieback, looking Northwest
Mile 17

(11) Third of three breaks 
in tieback, looking Northwest
Mile 18
(12) Northern terminus of L-28
Tieback, looking Northwest
Mile 19
More proof that the swamp isn't just a rain-driven watershed.

Next steps: How to get more?
