[ARCHIVED] Miami-Dade County Sewer Spill


Miami-Dade County has issued a precautionary advisory to avoid recreational water activities including swimming, fishing and boating has been issued because of an ongoing wastewater discharge near Biscayne Blvd and NE 163rd Street.  

Crews from the Miami-Dade Water and Sewer Department (WASD) are unable to turn off the flow to the 48-inch wastewater line that transports wastewater west to the North District Wastewater Treatment Plant, because it would impact sewer service to the cities of Sunny Isles Beach, Golden Beach and the Eastern Shores community of North Miami Beach. These communities will not notice any disruption of service.

Miami-Dade County has mobilized emergency contractors to expedite repairs.

Signage has been posted in the affected areas. The boundaries include Maule Lake to the north, the Intracoastal to the east, the Haulover Inlet (including the Haulover Beach just north of the inlet) to the south and the mainland to the west. Other affected areas include Greynolds Park, the Oleta River State Park and beach, and the beaches located 500 feet to the north and south of the Haulover Inlet.

The Florida Department of Health in Miami-Dade County and the Department of Regulatory and Economic Resources are testing the posted waters and the advisory remains in effect until two consecutive days of clear testing occur after repairs are completed.

Please visit the Miami-Dade County WASD website for additional information.
