*The fees are for the installation of water meter(s) only. All new water services must be installed in accordance with the appropriate Miami-Dade Water & Sewer Department Standard Detail, prior to the installation of the water meter.

Water and Sewer Department reserves the right to install the appropriate sized meter, if a service is deemed to be oversized for a specific premise (use), as long as an adequate amount of flow is provided.

Additional deposit and/or opening or transferring of an account on the billing system may apply. For additional information please call Customer Service Division.

The meter will not be set with the installation of the new service, until your private plumbing is connected to the point of the set meter.

First time connection to water:
Owners or residents whose properties are currently served by well water and who wish to connect to WASD water facilities should follow these steps:

1. A licensed plumber/contractor should be hired for the installation of all plumbing facilities to the point where the new service installation and the Department’s water meter will be located. The owner/resident will assume the costs of the installation of all private plumbing facilities. The plumbing permit will be obtained through the Regulatory and Economic Resources Department:

Miami-Dade County (MDPIC)
Herbert S. Saffier Permitting and Inspection Center
11805 S.W. 26 Street, Suite 140  
Miami, Florida
Hours: 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.

2. Once all private plumbing facilities/connections to the point where the Department’s new service is installed and where the water meter will be set, the owner/resident should contact the New Business Office to have their WASD account opened. The Department requires 24-hour advance notice to provide an appointment for the disconnection of the existing well and schedule the meter installation.

For detail information regarding this process, please contact the New Business Office.
