About Us

WASD divers Joe Armao and Daniel Machado

Joe Armao and Daniel Machado play critical roles in keeping our water clean and our sewers working. As divers with the Water and Sewer Department, they inspect all of Miami-Dade County's underwater pipeline installations so we can turn on our water and flush the toilet.

The work is dangerous, often requiring them to work in cramped spaces with zero visibility.
