Indoor water use changes for new developments

The Water-Use Efficiency Standards Manual , developed by the Miami-Dade County Water and Sewer Department and created in 2009, includes an advisory committee's recommendations and new requirements regarding specific water-saving practices for certain industries, as well as low-impact development practices, to achieve maximum water savings in future residential and commercial development.

The Department is also reviewing the water use assigned to different land uses listed in Chapter 24, Section 24-43-1 of the Miami-Dade County Code of Ordinances. This information will be included in future updates of the manual.
