Summary
Abstract: The greater Everglades Restoration program includes a management plan for the C-43 Canal, or Caloosahatchee River. This plan affects the quantity, quality, and timing of freshwater releases at control structure S-79 at Franklin Locks. Freshwater contributions are from Lake Okeechobee, and farming runoff along the canal from Lake Okeechobee to the town of Alva. This study will provide basic information on the effects on the quality of water entering J. N. Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge as the result of freshwater releases at control structure S-79

Purpose: The objective of this project is to study the relation between freshwater discharges from the Caloosahatchee River and observed water quality parameters inside Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge, and to describe seasonal changes in the spatial distribution of selected water quality parameters within the tidal reach of the Caloosahatchee River and surrounding estuaries.
