Detailed Description

USGS staff--working with partners--released a harmless, fluorescent dye as part of a large-scale test that is being conducted along a 3,000-foot stretch of canals and levees. Its goal is to determine how to best design and formulate plans to reconnect water flows in the Everglades.
