in three major ways. First, its vegetation serves as a filter to clean
the water as it makes its slow journey southward. Secondly, it's a major
habitat for wildlife and plant life. Finally, it actually prevents flooding
by slowing down the flow of water after heavy rains.
Fort Lauderdale is known as the Venice of America because the city
has 185 miles of local waterways. Hundreds of homes back up to the waterways
and it common to see high masts behind many of the homes.
