The Army Corps of Engineers says the stage at Lake Okeechobee today is at an elevation of 13.06 feet. Last year on this date, it was 15.44 feet. (Source: WPTV)

From WPTV: Even though there are not drastic changes as to how the Army Corps of Engineers stores and releases water, it doesn’t think we will see conditions that created the murky, toxic blue-green algae that plagued the Treasure Coast; and the reason is rain.

Their rain forecasts tell them to expect less rain, therefore lower lake volumes, which in turn means lower releases in 2017 and 2018.
