People in Southwest Florida had a chance to voice their opinions and concerns about how the Army Corps of Engineers manages water releases.

The Corps hosted a workshop on the Lake Okeechobee system operating manual at Cape Vineyard Community Church.

The agency explained the process of the operating manual and then answered questions.

One woman says she believes these meetings are important, especially after the devastating algae blooms, we saw last year.
