The water-control structure on East Sandpiper Drive in Inverness maintained by the Southwest Florida Water Management District will undergo renovations in the coming month — a benefit of the recent dry spell, according to the district. District workers will update the structure’s electrical system and refurbish all four gates, in addition to other improvements. “It’s been 50 years since that structure was built, so we’re basically doing a refurbish to rehab it and kind of get it up to speed,” SWFWMD senior professional engineer Mark Fulkerson said.
