The latest Water Use Permit issued to Miami-Dade County Water and Sewer Department caps the amount of water that the County can withdraw from the aquifer for the County’s drinking water. As a result, the County is not allowed, under that permit, to withdraw more water from the aquifer than the amount of water it had been using at the time the permit was issued.
Biscayne Engineering was contracted by WASD to prepare a program to install new water services, free of charge to the property owner, to new water mains along the frontage of the property.
