Annual Water Quality Report


The Water Quality Report is designed to inform you about the excellent water the City of Miami Beach delivers to you every day.  The City's number one goal is to provide you and your family a safe and dependable supply of drinking water.

The 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.
