Statement regarding Ocean Outfall report
August 1, 2017 — Water and Sewer

In 2016, the Miami-Dade Water and Sewer Department (WASD) was alerted to a potential leak and staff did not find any evidence of a leak at that time.

In an overabundance of caution, WASD has initiated water sample testing to be conducted by the Department of Regulatory and Economic Resources (RER) - less than 24 hours after being notified of this leak through the Notice of Intent. It is important to note that this water is fully treated and meets all Environmental Protection Agency and the Florida Department of Environmental Protection standards regarding the public's health and the environment.
