Navigational Locks Along Kissimmee River and Kissimmee Chain of Lakes Are Now Open
Florida - Tuesday October 25, 2022: The South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) has re-opened five navigational locks along the Kissimmee River and in the Kissimmee Chain of Lakes.
The S-65, S-65A, S-65D and S-65E boat locks along the Kissimmee River and the S-61 Southport boat lock were closed for public access to assist with alleviating high water conditions in the Kissimmee Chain of Lakes after Hurricane Ian.
