Notes from Broward County, infrastructure edition

As I noted before, there is vital infrastructure that crossed into the Glades, and even though the restoration is in it's second decade, they can't be moved. High and medium voltage lines crisscross the Glades, moving power from generating stations to end users. Power lines are almost always laid in the most direct, "as the crow flies" line, even if it crosses a protected wetland. Just like the canals, it's benefit and necessity outweighs the restoration process.
