SoMi supports Miami-Dade Septic to Sewer Task Force
Did you know there are over 2,300 properties in South Miami that are not connected to a sewer system and still relying on septic tanks?
Septic tanks treat and dispose of wastewater in an underground drain field. But issues such as improper maintenance, aging infrastructure, and groundwater levels may hinder septic tanks from functioning as designed and could pollute the environment.
Miami-Dade County is creating a task force to study issues related to converting from septic tanks to the sewer system, and South Miami is supporting the effort.
South Miami accounts for approximately two percent of the remaining septic systems county-wide.
