A new online interactive map tracks the weekly amount and movement of water south out of Lake Okeechobee as well as updates on the storage capacity of major storage areas.

To help reduce freshwater releases to South Florida's estuaries during the 2014 wet season, South Florida Water Management District operations moved approximately 339 billion gallons of water south from Lake Okeechobee through four water control structures from Nov. 1, 2013, through Oct. 31, 2014 – that's equal to 782,367 football fields filled with 1 foot of water. This action is part of an effort to reduce Lake Okeechobee releases to the east and west coastal estuaries.
