Isaac - It was a miss! Isaac skirted Naples and Port of the Islands heading northwest through the Gulf of Mexico. :)
The Weir - SFWMD made their presentation at the CID meeting. As it turns out, it is still in the research stages. They are doing studies on the river, so you will see people and equipment there. It seems the main reason to do this would be to give manatees more room. It will be interesting to see what transpires, but I wouldn't look for anything to happen anytime soon. There would be a public meeting if they do decide to do something there.

Procedure for TURNING OFF WATER at the Backflow Preventer - For residents of the Port who want to turn their water service off while they are away for extended periods of time please follow the following instructions: To extend the service life of the backflow preventer you will turn off the valve after the backflow. This will ensure that the gaskets, o-rings, etc… will remain under pressure and wet while the water is off to your home. In the picture you see that the side of the backflow is marked with the direction of flow. The valve located at the discharge side of the backflow is the proper valve to shut, as shown in the picture. Not all properties are equiped with the Backflow Preventer, it is an on-going project to get them all done.
