Projects with Existing Water or Sewer Service

Setting a Water Meter on an Existing Water Service

If you have a property that had water service to it provided by the Miami-Dade Water and Sewer Department (WASD), but for some reason the meter was removed, you must have a water meter set on the existing service. Please note that this assumes there are no changes proposed to the existing use of the property.

In order to request that your meter be set, you must submit the following in writing to the WASD New Business Office at either the LeJeune building, 3575 S. LeJeune Road (south of US-1) or the Miami-Dade Permitting and Inspection Center (MDPIC) at 11805 SW 26 Street in west Miami-Dade:
