Fight over a Fla. sewer pipe raises national financial and health issue

VIRGINIA KEY, Fla. -- The wastewater plant on this barrier island sits tucked in a northern corner, away from the wading birds, views of Miami Beach and grassy vegetation providing prime picnic spots. If not for the perfumed mist sprayed from metal pipes to camouflage the odor, it could be any blocky warehouse of white buildings. Past a dirt road, one white building links to an orange-tinged pipe. Nondescript as it is, the pipe, which carries millions of tons of partially treated sewage daily miles out to the ocean, is at the center of one of the biggest fights over climate change in the country.
