Projects with New Water or Sewer Service

The following information is for making a New, First-Time physical connection to the Miami-Dade Water and Sewer Department's (WASD) water or sewer systems. If the property you are responsible for has had water service in the past (in other words, it is already physically connected to the water system) and you simply need to open an account for water service under your name, please contact Customer Service at 305-665-7477.

New First-Time Water Service Installation from an Existing Water Main

If you are changing a property's previous type of use (example: building multiple residential units on land that was previously zoned for single family use), please note the following: in addition to any permits you would require for making the proposed change, as well as all of the items listed below, WASD would need the sewage flow allocation letter  to reflect any additional gallonage demand created by the change. WASD will determine if the water main fronting the property is of sufficient size for the additional gallonage demand and if it provides complete property frontage.

In order to obtain a new water service installation (connection to water main) from an existing water main abutting your property, you must submit the following documents and information 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:
