Mark Perry, Executive Director of Florida Oceanographic Society discusses upcoming Lake Okeechobee water releases
Mark Perry, Executive Director of Florida Oceanographic Society talks about the potential impact of upcoming water releases from Lake Okeechobee.
The Army Corps of Engineers plans to begin releasing water from a bloated Lake Okeechobee in an effort curb the threat of a toxic algae bloom over the summer.
Don't cue the ticker-tape parade quite yet, but seagrass is starting to make a comeback in the Indian River Lagoon along the Treasure Coast and Space Coast.
The Army Corps of Engineers is "rolling the dice" with water South Florida depends on by lowering Lake Okeechobee, the U.S. Sugar Corp. says.
Less rainfall than expected from Hurricane Dorian plus efforts to keep Lake Okeechobee low add up to no discharges to the St. Lucie and Caloosahatchee rivers.
Test results from two samples taken this week along the Indian River in Fort Pierce confirm the presence of blue-green algae but it shows no signs of being toxic.
