PortMiami Dredging

As a 2 billion dollar project, the dredging taking place in the Port of Miami has raised much controversy. It begs to bring up the debate of what’s more important; our marine environment or our economy?

Everglades: Did You Know?

The first attempt at draining the Everglades was undertaken in 1882 by the Okeechobee Land and Gulf Coast Canal Company, owned by Hamilton Disston. These companies dredged an 11 mile canal from Lake Okeechobee, south towards Miami.  Additionally, the companies created a canal north from Lake Okeechobee towards Kissimmee. From here, they dredged another canal west towards the Gulf of Mexico, creating a navigable waterway used for steam boat traffic.

“I think it galvanizes their understanding of the impact of sea-level rise within their own community. Secondly, it gives them a form to collaborate and to communicate what
they observe.”
