Cape Coral canals experiencing low water levels, residents say
LEE COUNTY, Fla. — Some Cape Coral residents said recent rains have been necessary to help replenish canal water levels in the city.
A couple who lives on a canal at Southeast 13th Terrace said that they’re used to water levels dropping between spring and summer, but recent levels have been the worst they’ve ever seen in nearly 20 years.
A spokesperson for the City of Cape Coral said that freshwater canal levels can drop significantly during the dry season since they depend on rainfall and irrigation water use.
Residents who are dealing with low levels said that they want more solutions.
City officials said that everyone must follow the two day a week watering schedule year round to help regulate canal water levels.
