Temporary chlorination in drinking water underway
October 29, 2019 — Water and Sewer

The Miami-Dade Water and Sewer Department (WASD) will temporarily change its chlorination process in drinking water Nov. 4-17. 

Free chlorine is considered an effective method of cleansing water distribution system. This routine procedure is regularly scheduled each year in a partnership with the Florida Department of Health of Miami-Dade County and the Department of Regulatory and Economic Resources. 

County residents may experience some chlorine smell and taste in their water during this short-term period. The temporary change does not cause adverse health effects and is a necessary part of WASD's ongoing efforts to provide safe drinking water to Miami-Dade County residents.
