WATER QUALITY REPORT
City of Miami Beach purchases its drinking water from the Miami-Dade Water
& Sewer Department (WASD) as a wholesale customer and then supplies it to
its residents and visitors through the distribution system. WASD manages the
water chemistry and tests for biological, organic, and inorganic contaminants.
Biological examination and chemistry testing is continuously ongoing. Organic
and inorganic testing is performed annually and the results are provided to the
City for review. All testing shows the water being received from WASD meets or exceeds
federal and state drinking water standards.
The City employs
professionally licensed water treatment operators, distribution system
operators, and engineers. Collaboratively this team has developed a proactive
water quality sampling and monitoring plan and best management practices exceeding
federal and state minimum requirements. The highlights of the plan include
daily, monthly, yearly, and three year interval testing and operating protocols
to protect the consumers.
