Temporary chlorination process in drinking water in process
November 3, 2017 — Water and Sewer

Chlorination Testing

The Miami-Dade Water and Sewer Department (WASD) will temporarily change its chlorination process in drinking water through Nov. 19.

Free chlorine is considered an effective method of cleansing water distribution system. This routine procedure is regularly scheduled each year in a partnership with the Florida Department of Health of Miami-Dade County and the Department of Regulatory and Economic Resources.

County residents may experience some chlorine smell and/or taste in their water during this short-term period. The temporary change does not cause adverse health effects and is a necessary part of WASD's ongoing efforts to provide safe drinking water to Miami-Dade County residents.
