Fats, Oils & Grease

Fats, oils and grease (FOG) have become a major problem for Miami-Dade County's sewer system. Businesses, especially restaurant owners, can learn how to reduce their impact, as well as get guidelines and additional information.

Water quality

Water connects everything. Beneath all of South Florida is the Biscayne Aquifer, our sole source of drinking water.
What we do on land affects our drinking water supply and the health of our coastal waters.

Before you build or buy...

Find out if a property in Miami-Dade may have wetlands, protected forest resources, a history of contamination or flooding or is located in a wellfield protection area.


Miami-Dade County Environmental Resources Management implements monitoring, education, restoration, regulatory and land management programs to protect water quality, drinking water supply, air quality and natural resources that are vital to the health and well-being of all Miami-Dade County residents and visitors and the ecosystem.
