Water shift underway

Historically it was the S-12s structures...

That fed Everglades National Park its water from the north.

S-12B structure as seen near Shark Valley VC,
looking east down the Tamiami Trail

With one bridge built,

And two more on the way ...

Third of three bridges,
looking south

T
he move is afoot to shift more flow to the east to the main thalweg of Shark River Slough.

Pulled that term out of my old hydrogeology notes from college. It technically applies to river channels, but strands - although discontinuous - also tend to have a deepest spot, and sometimes connected by a chain of lakes.
