HEADER
Date:

To: Honorable Chairman Joe A. Martinez
and Members, Board of County Commissioners

From: George M. Burgess
County Manager

Subject: Ordinance Amending Section 24-43.1 of the Code of Miami-Dade County, Florida, Relating to Sewage Flows for Sanitary Sewers and the Maximum Allowable Septic Tank Sewage Loading Requirements

STAFF RECOMMENDATION
Recommendation
It is recommended that the Board of County Commissioners approve the attached Ordinance Amending Section 24-43.1 of the Code of Miami-Dade County, Florida (Code), relating to sewage flows for sanitary sewers and the maximum allowable septic tank sewage loading requirements.

Scope
The proposed ordinance involves environmental regulation throughout Miami-Dade County.

Fiscal Impact/Funding Source
This ordinance will not require additional funding and will be revenue neutral to the Department of Environmental Resources Management (DERM). The Water and Sewer Department (WASD) charges for water and sewer connections based on a cost per gallon reflecting the value of water/sewer collection, treatment and transmission systems serving the property multiplied by the number of gallons assigned to the proposed use. The proposed ordinance, in general, decreases the standard gallonage for various usages without changing the cost per gallon. The net result will be a reduction in most water and sewer connection charges. WASD’s approved FY2010-11 capital improvement plan/budget anticipated the slight reduction in water and sewer connection charges.

Track Record/Monitor

MANAGER'S BACKGROUND
Background
Over 30 years ago, Section 24-43.1 of the Code set forth sewage unit flow rates to determine sewage flows for sanitary sewers and septic tank sewage loading for various land uses. DERM and WASD recently coordinated on proposing revised sewage unit flow rates for various land uses as set forth in Section 24-43.1 of the Code.

This proposed ordinance is being submitted for enactment in response to changes in the Florida Building Code mandating the use of water-conserving fixtures in new construction and to better evaluate overall water demand. WASD contracted with two local consulting firms, Cordova Rodriguez and Associates, Inc. and Samabi Group, Inc., to analyze the water usage in WASD's service area and provide recommendations for revising the sewage unit flow rates. The study concluded that it was necessary to revise the daily annual average sewage unit flow rates set forth in Chapter 24 based upon reduction in water usage throughout WASD's service area.

This ordinance also provides for the use of an engineering flow study, in lieu of the revised table of sewage unit flow rates for sanitary sewers and septic tank sewage loading, which utilizes recognized standard practices of the engineering profession.
