Water sample solicitations not affiliated with Miami-Dade Water and Sewer Department

Residents in South Dade and Southwest Miami-Dade County may have recently received packages offering complimentary water analysis, but this request is not on behalf of the Miami-Dade Water and Sewer Department (WASD). The packages request the homeowner to fill the plastic container provided, fill out a survey that includes personal information and leave it outside for pick-up.

"I want to assure Miami-Dade County residents that the water they receive from Miami-Dade County is safe and is tested more than 100,000 times a year," said WASD Director John Renfrow. "We mail out our annual water quality report to each household that receives County water informing them of the high quality tap water they receive. Our drinking water meets or exceeds all federal, state and local drinking water standards."
