Conservation & Outreach

Value of Water and PSA Contest

Water is essential to all life. Without it, there would not be any food, manufacturing, fire protection and electricity to name a few. Read more about the value of water and the psa video contest, including winners from last year.

Think before you flush

The water you flush and that goes down your drains travels though miles of wastewater pipes to reach our treatment plants. The Miami-Dade Water and Sewer Department (WASD) has 6,451 miles of sewer collection pipes throughout the County.

Leak Detection Tips

So often, the biggest culprit of a high water bill comes from water leaks that go undetected. And you may not even know that you have a leak, because not all leaks are visible and may be underground or concealed.

Showerhead Exchange

If your bathroom fixtures have not been upgraded since 1996, the Miami-Dade Water and Sewer Department will exchange your actual showerhead for a more streamlined, cost-effective High-Efficiency showerhead as well as provide you with a conservation kit for your home.

Can the Grease!

Dumping cooking grease down the drain can cause serious damage to your pipes and sewage system. The best way to dispose of grease is to pour it into a can, let it cool, then throw it into the regular trash.

Is Your Water Cloudy?

There are times when the water that comes out of your faucet appears cloudy. Typically, it's short-lived, and it's important to know it is not contaminated. Read more about why your water may appear cloudy, and what to do when it does.

Hurricane Preparedness

When hurricane season approaches, you are reminded to prepare your home and family for the possibility of dangerous storms affecting Miami-Dade County. Among the preparations you should make is to ensure an adequate supply of water for yourself and your family (including pets).

Water Conservation Program

Miami-Dade County's Water Conservation Program offers a variety of money-saving and water-saving tips -- and rebates -- to help residents conserve this very precious resource.
