LakeFly,.Moore Haven water control structure 77 releases water from Lake Okeechobee and other nearby tributaries such as Fish Eating Creek on Monday. The lighter water on the left in the foreground is from Lake Ockeechobee, which was churned up by several hurricanes last season, contains pollutants from the Kissimee River Basin and agriculture run off which makes the water lighter.   While the darker water on the right is a more natural water which is cleaner containing less suspended pollutants. The Lake Ockeechobee level is being lowered in preparation for this years hurricane season. Erik Kellar/Staff
