The Miami-Dade County’s Water and Sewer Department (WASD) is the primary provider of water and wastewater services to Miami-Dade County serving a population of almost 2.3 million, making it among the largest water/wastewater utilities in the United States. At the May 21, 2013, Board of County Commissioners meeting, the Board approved the Consent Decree (CD) negotiated with the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the United States Department of Justice (DOJ) and the State of Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP). The CD outlines the activities to be undertaken to reduce Sanitary Sewer Overflows (SSO’s), exceedances of treated effluent limitations, and to ensure proper management, operation and maintenance practices. All capital improvement projects must be completed on or before fifteen (15) years from the date of lodging of the CD with the United States District Court. Many program requirements are required to be delivered within a certain time after the CD’s “effective date” which is defined as the date the court enters the CD or six (6) months after the date of lodging whichever occurs first.
