WASD simplifies water connection fee procedure to facilitate business openings, expansions

MIAMI (October 03, 2017)

The Miami-Dade Water and Sewer Department (WASD)’s multi-billion Capital Improvement Program (CIP) is an economic engine that will bring more than 16,000 jobs to the community within the next 10 years, increases service capacity that will support more businesses to open/expand in Miami-Dade County, and improve the reliability and sustainability of the water and sewer system.

Through a directive sponsored by the Miami-Dade Board of County Commissioners, WASD - in an effort to foster positive economic growth to the County by generating $24.9 billion in positive economic output, has recently instituted a new policy that will assist new and expanding businesses. It provides the opportunity for property and business owners to pay connection charges as installments for up to a year.

“Just as we are looking to upgrade and modernize our water and sewer systems, WASD wants to improve our internal procedures to facilitate progress for business owners. We are happy to implement this process as it may be beneficial for the success of their business plan,” said WASD Director Lester Sola.
