River tour shows lasting impact of ‘Lake O’ water releases


FORT MYERS, Fla. – State Rep. Heather Fitzenhagen organized a boat tour on the Caloosahatchee River to show the impact of Lake Okeechobee Water releases; she is asking the state to consider ways to send excess lake water south into the Everglades.

“We must as part of a comprehensive plan, have some storage south of the lake,” Fitzenhagen said.
