[ARCHIVED] NMB Water needs your help conserving water

Important Info 1 PIC

Due to heavy rains associated with Tropical Storm ETA that caused widespread flooding, NMB is now wreaking havoc on our wastewater treatment systems.

With the ground saturated and canals and retention areas all at capacity, a massive amount of groundwater and stormwater is infiltrating wastewater systems and creating backups. NMB customers in Miami Gardens, North Miami Beach, and Unincorporated Miami-Dade County are being asked to reduce their use of water as much as possible for the next four days to help reduce pressure on the system.

      - Reduce length of showers 

      - Limit flushing of toilets

      - Do not run dishwasher 

      - Do not do laundry  


      NMB Water, as well as Miami-Dade County, has utility crews out addressing areas impacted by sewer collection system backups. Residents should avoid areas of standing water or coming into contact with untreated wastewater.

       

      Thank you for your cooperation in helping NMB conserve water.
