Tenneco Towers - Broward

Extensive invertebrate growth covers a leg of the Tenneco Towers artificial reef after about 12 years in the water. This reef, on the border of Dade and
Broward counties, is an old oilrig template moved here from Louisiana and placed here on 10/3/85 in 105 feet of water. FWC diver Tom Maher took the
photo on 9/17/97. There are two rig structures at this reef site that rise off the bottom over 40 feet.
