Tenneco Towers

Three towers donated to Dade and Broward Counties by Tenneco Oil Company and placed on the Dade/Broward county line for equal access on October 3, 1985. The shallowest platform is located in 60 feet of water, while the deepest is in 120 feet. They are separated by approximately 100 feet. The growth on the structures is incredible as the open mesh rig design allows uninhibited flow of water and thus nutrients. Oysters, clams, sponges and the associated invertebrates are abundant. Unfortunately, Hurricane Andrew, which devastated South Florida on August 24, 1992, left one of the towers completely bent over, the legs collapsed.
