They tried to make a coral reef by disposing of old tires directly into the ocean, but only succeeded in polluting the water. More than four decades later, various cleanup projects are still being launched to haul up the remaining hundreds of thousands of discarded tires lying about a mile off Hugh Taylor Birch State Park.
