      He told me the army corps of engineers had released water into the Kissimmee and another river to relieve the pressure.
      Problem is the water is full of ag runoff, and a lot of the river is clogging with weed and bloom. Birds aren't fishing the rivers, but far more importantly, riverside property owners are upset because they can't navigate their boats.
      Of course, now it's reaching the coastline...
