Water continues to rise in Lake Okeechobee.

Water level keeps rising in Lake Okeechobee, forcing the Army Corp to conduct weekly dike inspections. The water level of the lake jumped up over 2 feet after Irma. It  has continued to rise as water flows south from Central Florida.

Water is being released into the St Lucie and Caloosahatchee Rivers at a rate of over a billion gallons a day, but that’s not enough to prevent the water levels from rising. The levee is classified as one of the nation’s most threatened dams. The first of the Corps’ weekly dike inspections is planned for next week.
