Newly-released underwater video shows an aging sewer line spewing partially treated sewage into the water less than a mile off the coasts of Virginia Key and Fisher Island near Miami. A diver hired by the local non-profit Miami Waterkeeper captured the video. The group filed a notice of intent to sue Miami-Dade County Monday morning, July 31,2017.
