TRENDING TOPIC FOR TUESDAY, MAY 24TH: The Superbowl is coming back to Miami-Dade in 2020! What could be better? Only that the Champions League finals would be played here as well. We leave you with some Twitter reactions from our elected officials.
WATER & SEWER DEPARTMENT: Roberto Rodriguez-Tejera and Juan Camilo Gomez spoke with Director of the Water and Sewer Department Lester Sola, on their show “Contacto Directo” on Actualidad 1020 AM.
Sola highlighted the importance of investing in Miami-Dade’s Water and Sewer system and the renovations to the county’s system. “Renovations will take place over the next 10 to 15 years. We have already started working on the plans and are focusing on the older piping to protect the water and treat it effectively.” When asked about the effects of high salinity levels in our water, Sola explained that “although it can have an impact on the wells that are southeast of the county, the department has wells all over the Miami-Dade that can be used to make sure we are providing high quality water. We have more than enough wells, so if we find a problem in one of the wells, we have the option of using the other ones until the issue gets resolved.” He continued, “we recognize the importance of keeping the water’s balance, so that people are able to drink clean water.” Sola concluded, “I think it is important for the entire community to follow this topic. We must work to preserve our water, as it has an impact on everyone’s lives. Specially, in terms of the energy and electricity we consume, and being confident that we have the highest quality drinking water in our community.”
