Water and Sewer
The Value of Water
Water is essential to all life. Without it, there would not be any food manufacturing, fire protection and electricity to name a few. The Biscayne Aquifer provides most of the water to Miami-Dade County, but it takes 14,000 miles of underground pipes, 1,047 pumps, 210,000 drinking water tests per year, a ton of equipment, and people working 24/7 to deliver safe, quality water to homes and businesses; and then, to treat and dispose of the wastewater.
Think Before You Flush
Consider the water and sewer infrastructure, avoid clogs and costly repairs by disposing of items properly. Start a healthy habit today and take a look at all of the items that can clog your home's internal plumbing and the Department's wastewater transmission system.
