On the upstream side are (will be) three pump stations.

Can you see the Miller pump station
under construction in the background?
It is those pump stations, combined with pulling out the elevated roadbeds and filling in the canals, that will help spread the water out as sheet flow downstream as shown below.
It's been an Everglades Restoration project a long-time in the making.
A big thank you to everyone involved!
