Wetlands restoration project threatened by proposed landfill expansion

South Dade landfill wants to expand on wetlands slated for Everglades restoration

Miami Herald 11/11/15

Waste Management Inc. wants to expand a dump into the footprint of the Biscayne Bay coastal wetlands project, a project to restore Biscayne Bay and the Everglades by allowing fresh water to flow naturally.  The site is eligible to be purchased with Amendment 1 money.  The landfill was opened to facilitate clean-up after hurricane Andrew and consequently longer term planning may have been neglected.
