Rainfall affects river water quality when storm water flows transport pollutants into the river.  And seasonal variations in rainfall drive river flow velocities that can significantly influence salinity patterns throughout the Loxahatchee River Estuary.  We have created a tool to explore temporal and spatial rainfall patterns over the Loxahatchee River watershed utilizing the South Florida Water Management District’s radar-based rainfall data named NEXRAD.

Below is a map of the rainfall across the watershed, compare rainfall maps between two time periods, view tabular summaries of rainfall totals, and rainfall totals over drainage sub-basins.
