No Contact with water advisory lifted

MIAMI (June 24, 2017)

Based on water quality results, the precautionary advisory to avoid recreational water activities including swimming that was originally issued Tuesday, June 20 that included the Biscayne Canal into the Intracoastal between Broad Causeway and 79 Street Causeway has now been lifted.

The Florida Department of Health in Miami-Dade County and the Department of Regulatory and Economic Resources (RER), Division of Environmental Resources Management (DERM) have tested the affected waters and received satisfactory results.

The precautionary advisory was the result of an air release valve that broke off a 63-inch sewer line at 840 NW 155 Ln. No further testing or monitoring is necessary.

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 the department’s website.
