Caloosahatchee River Basin

The Caloosahatchee River Basin is located within CHNEP and spans 424.9 square miles. The basin spans from Lake Okeechobee to San Carlos Bay and contains 62 named lakes/ponds, 92 named rivers/streams/canals and 2 named bays/bayous. The historically shallow and meandering Caloosahatchee River has been deepened, straightened, and widened into a highly managed and regulated waterway. The river and estuary’s ecosystems are significantly altered, as watershed runoff and discharges from Lake Okeechobee have impacted the water quality and salinity regimes.

This basin is located within: Pine Island Sound Watershed

CHNEP's Comprehensive Conservation and Management Plan (CCMP) identified four action plans: water quality improvement; hydrological restoration; fish, wildlife, and habitat improvement; and public engagement. Click on the interactive maps below to view data associated with these goals and actions.

Water Quality Snapshot

The Water Quality Snapshot compares the most current water quality data to applicable water quality standards for Chlorophyll a, Phosphorus, Nitrogen, Bacteria, and Dissolved Oxygen to provide a snapshot of how a waterbody is doing. Water quality standards are outlined in Florida Administrative Code 62-302 for fresh/marine waterbodies of different types and uses. A Water Body Identification number (WBID) is an assessment unit that is intended to represent Florida’s waterbodies at the watershed or sub-watershed scale. The assessment units are drainage basins, lakes, lake drainage areas, springs, rivers and streams, segments of rivers and streams, coastal, bay and estuarine waters in Florida.
