Miami Shores water notices not affiliated with Miami-Dade Water and Sewer Department, officials say


Miami-Dade County, Florida – Residents of the Village of Miami Shores have recently found water solicitation notices at their homes. These notices, which ask for feedback, are not sent from the Miami-Dade Water and Sewer Department (WASD), the department informed. This marks yet another instance where door hangers or flyers, not uncommon across the county, have made their rounds, sometimes even offering free water tests. The motive behind these offers typically revolves around the promotion of water filtration systems for installation in homes.

However, the WASD reminds residents that Miami-Dade’s drinking water is of high quality and does not require additional filtering for safe use. Contrary to what the recent notices might suggest, Miami-Dade County’s water complies with all safety standards and has not breached any regulatory limits.

“I want everyone to know that Miami-Dade County’s water is excellent and meets all national drinking water standards,” stated WASD Director Roy Coley. He emphasized the department’s commitment to water quality, mentioning that “We test the water at our accredited labs more than 150,000 times a year. If you ever have a question about the quality of your drinking water, you should contact our Lab Division staff directly.”

For those residents who have concerns or questions about their drinking water’s quality, or to request a free water test, they can reach out to specific contact numbers provided by the department. These contact details vary depending on the geographical location of the caller, divided by Southwest Eighth Street. Residents who live north of Southwest Eighth Street can call 786-552-4738, while those who live south of Southwest Eighth Street can call 786-552-4181.

Moreover, the WASD is transparent about its water quality, issuing an annual Water Quality Report based on comprehensive data, with the latest report reflecting the findings from 2022.

Ensuring the delivery of safe and reliable water services remains a top priority for the Miami-Dade Water and Sewer Department. They encourage customers seeking more information about their services and programs to visit the official WASD website.
