It's time to Drain & Cover
South Florida's rainy season is upon us and now more than ever, we must remain vigilant to curb the spread of mosquito borne diseases.

To prevent the bite and spread of disease by mosquitoes, remember to drain and cover:
  • Drain any standing irrigation or rain water that can collect in garbage cans, house gutters, pool covers, coolers, toys, flower pots or other containers
  • Discard old items that aren’t being used and are storing water
  • Empty and clean birdbaths and pet water bowls once or twice weekly
  • Protect boats and vehicles from rain with tarps that don’t accumulate water
  • Maintain the water balance (pool chemistry) of swimming pools, and empty plastic swimming pools not in use
  • Check around faucets and air conditioner units, and repair leaks or puddles that remain for several days

Report water that has been standing for more than 48 hours on the free Miami Beach eGov app or to the Public Works Department by calling 305.673.7625.
