Brett Bibeau at forefront of Miami River's renaissance as director of 18-member commission formed by state
Once described as "a cesspool," the Miami River is taking on a new and vibrant life thanks to an effort of the public and private sectors and other activists to clean it up and generally improve it and the surrounding land.
