Date Issued:

Summary:
FIRST PART: During low-flow periods, salty water from the tidal part of the Caloosahatchee River moves upstream during boat locakges at the W.P. Franklin Dam near Ft. Myers, Florida. Several tests were conducted to determine if changes in locking procedures would effectively reduce or eliminate the problem. SECOND PART: Repeated injections of salt water through the lock chamber at the W.P. Franklin Dam causes a progressive increase in the chloride content of water in the fresh water reach of the Caloosahatchee River during low-flow periods. The primary purpose of this report is to evaluate the effects of the repeated injections of salt water.
