Dam It: Tide May be Turning Against U.S. Sugar Everglades Deal
In what appears to be first local newspaper editorial opposing the U.S. Sugar land acquisition, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel today urged the South Florida Water Management District to reject the deal.
Citing a rising tide of costs -- even as the deal has been downsized -- the Sun-Sentinel joined a chorus of critics who say the water district cannot afford to buy the land and build a needed reservoir in western Palm Beach County.
"There are better ways to spend the limited money the state has," the editorial opined, concluding that the "district should commit to projects, not U.S. Sugar."
