I'm sure it's closed, it was 11.6 this morning, and it's still storming out there right now. Now we have the tropical depression coming too.

:rebel: Yes kes2pines I went back later and checked the site and it was there this time, But for those of us who are in the Reservation I spoke with the man this morning and as of now unless they get a lot more rain in the weeks ahead we are still open. So go away Dorian :rebel:

:rebel: Well it looks like they have now started to drain the swamp, water is going down steadily now. it is now below shut down elev, so they need to open it back up but now they will say their are to many deer on the levees still . :rebel: :scratch: :dontknow:

From what I understand it's shut down for 30 days minimum from date of closer, once it's closed. They will reassess the water depth just before the 30 days to see if they can reopen the area.
