Home owners often ask why Miami Dade Water and Sewer Department request they upgrade or install a new waterline in the roadway. The process for the installation is called a watermain extension.
Many areas in the county have undersized waterlines and service connections. When a home owner or developer submits plans for improvements the county reviews existing records and determines if the owner should upgrade the system.
Architects, Contractors, and home owners are often affected by this issue.
Always start your project by contacting Miami Dade Water and Sewer Department. Meet with a new business representative so you can identify and budget improvements as needed. Not all projects require a watermain extension but you may want to add a water meter, Fire Service, New Sewer Service or sewer lateral.
