The latest information about the Water and Sewer Department's projects and efforts to use reclaimed water.
As Miami-Dade County’s population continues to increase, so does our demand for drinking water. Like all natural resources, the Biscayne Aquifer, Miami-Dade County’s current source of drinking water, is not limitless. The use of reclaimed water in Miami-Dade County helps preserve the Biscayne Aquifer.
Government Cut pipeline project
As part of the Port of Miami's dredging project, the Water & Sewer Department is relocating and replacing two large pipes along Government Cut. A 54-inch wastewater force main (to be replaced by a 60-inch pipe) and 20-inch water main will be replaced and deepened.
Work on the replacement 60-inch wastewater force main, which started in summer 2011, is expected to be completed by summer 2013, and will run from Fisher Island to Miami Beach. A community meeting will be held June 27 to discuss the four-phase wastewater force main project.
The Port's dredging project, which will allow larger ships to access the port, is expected to be completed in August 2014.
