“I am looking forward to this opportunity to share with the public and members of other local governments and utilities the success WASD has had with improving Miami-Dade County’s water conservation efforts, which allows us to protect our water resources for current and future demands,” said Sola.

“This is a challenging, as well as exciting time as the department continues to plan for the future with the strategic enhancements and improvements we will be undertaking as a part of WASD’s $13.5 billion Capital Improvement Program,” he added.
