Summary:
The Mowry Canal (C-103) is located on the lower east coast of Florida approximately 25 miles south of Miami. Because of its location, it plays an important role in both flood protection and the salt water intrusion control network of southern Dade County (Fig.1). The Mowry Canal is of special interest to Biscayne National Park because its annual discharge is generally the greatest of the three major water management canals that discharge into southern Biscayne Bay (Fig.2). Mean annual discharges for water-years 1975-1980 (Oct 1-Sep 30) were recorded as 162,234 acre-feet for the Mowry Canal, 137,731 acre-feet for the Snapper Creek Canal (C-2), and 106-584 acre-feet for the Black Creek Canal (C-1) (WY 1978 is omitted since discharge data for tat year are not available for the Black Creek Canal). Typically the combined discharge from these three canals was greater than 400,000 acre-feet per year during the period of this study.
