Ocean Outfall Legislation Program

Ocean Outfall Legislation Program: Miami-Dade Water and Sewer Department

As the largest water and sewer utility in the southeastern United States. The Miami-Dade Water and Sewer Department (WASD) serves nearly 2.3 million residents and thousands of visitors. The staff works around the clock providing high-quality water and wastewater services, protecting public health and the environment. The Ocean Outfall Legislation (OOL) Program was created from a state-wide directive to reduce the practice of discharging wastewater into the ocean using existing ocean outfalls and consists of 24 major construction projects totaling over $2 billion.

This year, the department will embark on various major wastewater treatment plant construction projects, with Jacobs acting as the Owner’s Representative for the Ocean Outfall Legislation Program.
