Septic to Sewer Commercial Corridors General Obligation Bond Program

The Miami-Dade Water and Sewer Department (WASD) is currently investing $126 million in GOB funds dedicated to converting septic systems to County sewer service for more than 1,000 commercial properties in Miami-Dade County. In addition to improving the chances for economic development and job creation, the protection of the County’s water supply will also be improved and enhanced by eliminating commercial/industrial septic tanks from these areas.

When coupled with planned water infrastructure upgrades, it reflects a $200 million project, which would place it among the largest commit­ments of septic to sewer conver­sions in the State of Florida.

The initial five commercial corridors were identified by criteria adopted by the Board of County Commissioners that considered planning & environmental factors, economic, land use, and current and socioeconomic conditions.
