Precautionary swimming advisory in effect


(Miami, July 5, 2016) - A swimming advisory is in effect for the beach areas at Hobie/Windsurfer, Marine Stadium, MAST Academy and Jungle Island.

An overflow of wastewater from a pipe adjacent to the American Airlines Arena caused a wastewater release into the surrounding surface waters. Advisory signs have been posted in the affected areas.

As a precautionary measure, a public advisory is in effect to refrain from swimming and recreational activities within the previously mentioned boundaries.

The Florida Department of Health in Miami-Dade County and the Department of Regulatory and Economic Resources are testing the affected waters and the advisory remains in effect until test results are clear.

It is the priority of the Miami-Dade Water and Sewer Department to provide safe, reliable service to its customers. For additional information about Department services and programs, visit the WASD website.
