Water pressure impacted in Northwest Miami-Dade due to repairs


Water pressure in sections of Northwest Miami-Dade Miami is being impacted Monday due to repairs being done to a large water main along Red Road.

The repair work will take place for the next three days between West 13th and 20th streets.

Customers may experience lower water pressures during this period, but the water quality is not affected, the Miami-Dade Water and Sewer Department announced.

Once repairs are completed, water pressures will return to normal.

Despite the lower pressure, the water in the affected area continues to meet all local, state and federal drinking water standards and is safe to drink, the department said.

The repair to the 54-inch water main is part of the Infrastructure Assessment and Replacement Program.
