The Herbert Hoover Dike is a 143-mile embankment that surrounds Lake Okeechobee, an integral part of the Central and Southern Florida Project. Its construction began in the 1930s. Since its completion in the 1960s, the dike has evidenced signs of distress. The US Army Corps of Engineers has installed 22 miles of partial penetrating cutoff wall to address stability issues and is currently replacing water control structures throughout the system. A Dam Safety Modification Study, which includes a comprehensive assessment of the risks for the entire HHD system and the measures necessary to mitigate them, is scheduled to be completed and approved in Summer 2015.
Location: Vista Center – 2300 N. Jog Road, West Palm Beach, FL 33411 (Room 1E-58)
Directions: From I-95, head West on Okeechobee Blvd. until you pass over the Turnpike. Then take a right at the second light (Jog Road) heading North, and continue about a third of a mile. Finally, on your right will be The Vista Center Government Building Main Entrance. Be sure to park in Visitor’s Parking.
