Discharges to stop from Lake O Monday

Posted:

ST LUCIE COUNTY, FL (WFLX) - The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is preparing to stop the discharges from Lake Okeechobee into the St. Lucie Estuary on Monday.

Run-off from the St. Lucie Canal will still be allowed to pass through the St. Lucie dock as needed. Discharges into the Calooshatchee Estuary will also be reduced.

The Army Corps of Engineers will now focus on retaining water in the lake to ensure a supply for the dry season.
