Miami-Dade Water and Sewer Department to host public meeting about new sewer and water pipe installations

MIAMI (October 04, 2017)

As the Miami-Dade Water and Sewer Department (WASD) continues to enhance and improve its infrastructure as part of its multibillion dollar Capital Improvement Program (CIP), they are close to beginning a new project that will bring both a new 48-inch water line and 16-inch sewer line to the Greater Kendall area. Therefore, the department will host a public meeting to inform the community to the scope, timing and benefit of the project.

The meeting is scheduled from 6 to 8 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 10th in an Open House format, so attendees can arrive at any point during the event. The meeting is being held at the Civic Center Pavilion at the Kendall Village Center, 8625 SW 124 Ave.

“We are having these types of meetings throughout the year all over the County so that our customers are aware of the planned construction and the benefits they are expected to bring to their communities,” said WASD Director Lester Sola. “This specific project is expected to provide enhanced reliability of the system.”

The project, generally along Southwest 117 Avenue between Snapper Creek Drive and Southwest 152 Street, is expected to begin in January 2018 and conclude October 2019, will be done in stages.

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.
