    Occaisional minor tidal flooding since Miami Beach is subsiding for two reasons. 1. 2/3 of it was built on fill from Biscayne Bay in the 1920’s that is still compacting, just like the Battery in New York. 2. Drawdown of the underlying Biscayne aquifer for provide Miami drinking water.
    The solution is to install one way drainage check valves. About 400 are needed. They have been too cheap to do so in the hope they can get Fed funding. A tourist tax would solve the funding problem instantly.
