The Miami River corridor was home to early Native American settlements, and in the early 1900s it was dredged in order to assist in draining the Everglades, the subtropical marshland in southern Florida. As the city of Miami developed, the river became a major outlet for storm water and untreated sewage. In 1990 the USACE recommended that maintenance dredging be done to remove sediments impacting navigation.
