WASD releases 2020 Water Quality Report
You can raise a glass and toast to Miami-Dade’s clean drinking water. Today, the Miami-Dade Water and Sewer Department (WASD) released its 2020 Water Quality Report, also known as the Consumer Confidence Report (CCR).
The CCR provides a snapshot of drinking water quality each year based on the prior year’s testing results. WASD staff works 24-hours-a-day, year-round to ensure that high quality drinking water is available to its customers, including sampling and testing the water throughout the treatment process more than 150,000 times a year.
“Safe, reliable drinking water has never been more on the forefront of people’s minds than these last 13 months throughout the pandemic,” said WASD Interim Director Jose Cueto. “Not only is it necessary for drinking and cooking, but as a vital part of cleaning, disinfecting, and helping to contain the spread of communicable diseases including COVID.”
Our drinking water is an essential component of the County’s public health, so it is crucial that our department ensures that our water meets/exceeds all local, state, and federal drinking water requirements.
Every water utility in the United States is required by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to produce an annual CCR and make it available to all billed customers by July 1st. You can view the CCR here.
The Miami-Dade Water and Sewer Department’s top priority is to provide safe, reliable service to its customers. For additional information about Department services and programs, visit the WASD website.
