North Spreader salinity readings
September 24, 2014
Readings attached. As usual, the North Spreader is all fresh water during the rainy season. When the drought returns, without the Ceitus Barrier, it will convert to largely a salt water system. The seasonal conversion back and forth between salt and fresh precludes either from becoming well established, but even more importantly, the lack of fresh water flows through the wetlands west of Cape Coral defeats the normal functions of an estuary.
