Water advisory lifted for most areas

Bal Harbour Beach remains under the advisory

MIAMI ( February 06, 2019 )

Based on water quality results, the precautionary advisory to avoid recreational water activities including swimming that was originally issued Sunday, February 3 and included the areas of Oleta River State Park, the Haulover Inlet and the Intracoastal has now been lifted.
 
However, Bal Harbour Beach remains under the advisory and is being monitored by the Florida Department of Health in Miami-Dade County.

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 a waste water discharge resulting from a mechanical failure at a pump station, located at 350 Sunny Isles Blvd. 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 WASD website.
