Miami is at the forefront of some extensive capital improvement plans for the City’s sewer system. To provide awareness and community ownership, The Miami-Dade Water and Sewer Department (WASD), along with the Miami-Dade County Internal Services Department’s Small Business Development will host the Capital Improvement Program Training Workshop for Pump Stations on Wednesday Sept. 2, 2015. The City has taken an aggressive approach to readiness by providing information and resources to county certified small firms interested in bidding on pump station improvement, upgrades and replacements.
The Capital Improvement Program (CIP) has been designed to address aging infrastructure, comply with regulatory requirements and support economic growth, while still keeping utility rates competitive. Miami has taken its role, as the largest sewer utility in the southeast, with the utmost dedication. The plan is also ensuring the economic structure of the City’s growing population, with over 16,000 new jobs in place within a 10 year timeframe. With an organized community outreach, the City has invested in 111 pump stations, 27 Force Mains and 78 gravity lines. The investment is a multimillion dollar project that will sustain Miami’s growing population. The City also maintains the lowest water and sewer costs in all of Florida.
