Update on Wastewater Line Break in Miami Beach
Precautionary Advisory Still in Effect for Collins Canal, Indian Creek & Biscayne Bay

Crews continue repairing a wastewater line in the City Center/Convention Center area, between Meridian Avenue and Convention Center Drive.

At this time, workers have stopped the wastewater discharge. Currently, the various assisting agencies are evaluating the next steps to progress with final repairs. Neither the break nor the repair work will affect adjacent residential or business drains.

A precautionary advisory has been issued to limit contact with water at Collins Canal, Indian Creek, and Biscayne Bay along the western shoreline of Miami Beach from Government Cut to Kennedy Causeway.

The city continues to work with environmental agencies to ensure the safety of surrounding waterways. Miami-Dade County Department of Environmental Resource Management and Department of Health will continue sampling the waters.

A hotline has been established for information: 305.604.CITY(2489).
