Locks on Northern Lake Okeechobee (NOT the Okeechobee Waterway) Closed Due to Low Water Levels

Posted by Claiborne Young | Posted on 04-17-2012

Normally, we would not even pass along the link below, as this story, which appeared in the Florida News-Press.com, refers to locks almost never used by cruising size craft, off the waters of northern Lake Okeechobee. However, a rumor has been going around that this story refers to locks on the Okeechobee Waterway. Not so! All the OKWW locks are currently functional, though some are operating at reduced hours (see http://cruisersnet.net/?p=84839) due to drought conditions and lowering water levels in Lake Okeechobee.
Hope this region gets some rain, and lots of it. SOON!
