Has there been any water quality issues around Captiva lately due to Lake Okeechobee runoff?

Brown Water rarely affects Captiva's gulf beaches.. Last year, with all the problems, Captiva's beaches were not affected. Brown water tends to flow south towards Ft. Myers Beach and Naples.

So, Bayside of Captiva will be brown, Gulf side the normal blue/green.

Thanks, we saw a report about brown water rounding the Sanibel lighthouse. I'm glad to hear that its not heading north.
