Miami-Dade Water and Sewer encourages residents to conserve water during Tropical Storm Erika

MIAMI (August 27, 2015)

As south Florida residents prepare for Tropical Storm Erika, the Miami-Dade Water and Sewer Department encourages residents to conserve water before, during and after the storm. In order to prevent backups in the wastewater system, residents are urged to reduce household water use.

Reducing household water use will reduce demand on the water and sewer system. It will also decrease the volume of wastewater entering the sewer collection system. For more information on hurricane preparedness visit http://www.miamidade.gov/hurricane/

It is the priority of the Miami-Dade Water and Sewer Department to provide safe, reliable service to its customers. For additional information about Department services and programs, visit www.miamidade.gov/water.
