Lake Okeechobee Levels and Lock Schedules

Some very good news for boaters planning to cross Lake Okeechobee in the future. Due to all of the recent rain in South Florida, the Lake levels have finally risen above 12 feet. As of today...

U. S. Army Corps of Engineers, Jacksonville District

Lake Okeechobee and Navigation Depth Report

Data Ending 2400 hours 17 OCT 2011

Today's Lake Okeechobee Stage = 12.10 (Feet-NGVD29) Today's Route 1

Navigational Depth 6.04 Feet Today's Route 2 Navigational Depth 4.24 Feet

Bridge Clearance = 51.00 Feet S-308

Tailwater Elevation = 12.50 (Feet-NGVD29)

In addition, The lock tender at the Franklin Lock has informed me that the St. Lucie and Franklin Locks are opening every two hours from 7:00 AM to 7:00 PM. and will continue on that schedule until the Lake reaches 12 1/2 feet. At that time it is probable that the locks will go back to on demand schedules. Of course continuation of these schedules will depend on the Lake levels. Chuck
