No Contact with water advisory boundaries reduced

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 reduced.

The advisory is lifted from NW 17th Avenue to NE 6th Ave. As a precautionary measure, the public is advised to refrain from swimming, fishing and other water recreational activities for the areas east of NE 6th Avenue to the Bay, west of the Intracoastal waterway North to Broad Causeway and South to 79th Street Causeway including Pelican Harbor Marina and Biscayne Bay Aquatic Preserve. Signs will remain in the areas being tested.

The precautionary advisory was the result of an air release valve that broke off a 63-inch sewer line at 840 NW 155 Ln.

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.
