Hillsboro Beach FL Dredge Damages Coral Reef
***NOTE: THE CORPORATIONS ARE KILLING EVERYTHING, INCLUDING US AND A LOT OF PEOPLE DO NOT GIVE A DAMN!
Amateur video taken near Deerfield beach FL that shows damage to the reef being caused as I write this by excessive sand and silt on a delicate ecosystem. The damage is visible even in the video which is hard to capture with no point of reference. Ledges are filled in with fresh sand, silt covers delicate corals and sponges and silt pours down like snow.
The sound of dredge machines hums in the background at tax payers expense, pumping grey sand onto the beach for the benefit of beach front condos and hotels that could not even exist without tax payers to subsidize the insurance costs of living on a barrier island.
