As the hurricane season officially begins on June 1, the Miami-Dade Water and Sewer Department (WASD) is prepared to deliver essential services throughout the season. Our staff is committed to providing safe, high-quality drinking water and reliable sewer service to our more than 2.4 million customers year-round and throughout extreme weather events.

"As climate change continues to threaten our County, we may see more frequent and intense storms. That's why a key priority of my administration is to stay prepared in the present and invest in a resilient future, through infrastructure that will prepare us for tomorrow's threats," said Miami-Dade County Mayor Daniella Levine Cava. "Just as we ask our residents to make special preparations, the County also takes key steps to ensure we are ready to respond smoothly and seamlessly each year."

Prior to the South Florida region experiencing tropical storm force winds, WASD's treatment plants will transfer to generator power, so plant operations are not impacted by electrical fluctuations and outages

"Rest assured that as you secure your homes and prepare for your family's safety prior to a severe weather event, the Department has taken steps to ensure that our resources are sufficient to meet the needs of our customers," said Miami-Dade Water and Sewer Director Roy Coley. "The Department has fuel and water treatment supply reserves to operate on auxiliary power at the three water plants with uninterrupted service for two weeks without supplemental deliveries."

As the 2023 hurricane season approaches, WASD provides tips for what to do before, during and after a storm. Please also review Miami-Dade County's Hurricane Guide for additional tips and other important information to stay prepared well in advance of a storm.
