What Miami Water Tests found in Dade Tap Water
By water man On April 10, 2012 · 1 Comment

Over 40 containment’s were found in Miami Dade tap water significantly higher than the national city average. Sources of the pollutants vary from farm runoff of pesticides, fertilizers and Cyanide to industrial chemicals like uranium and arsenic. The Cyanide levels are disturbing as the national average was between 1-3 (ppb) Miami had 80 (ppb) Over 40 times more than the average city.

The distribution and processing of the water also has some chemical residues from the pipes that transport the water to the water treatment by- products. A disturbing amount of Monochloroacetic acid over 80 times the national city average has been found in Miami-Dade county tap water.

What is important to keep in mind is the legal limits usually exceed the safe health limit, so even if the water is in compliance with the law that does not mean that the water is safe to drink.

Miami-Dade Water & Sewer Department – Miami, FL

2,100,000 customers – Test data from: 2004-2008

Water tests through out the nation found more than 290 containment’s. More than half of these pollutants are not regulated, and can be legal in every amount. Not enough protection and dollars are put in place to stop the contamination of rivers, lakes and water reservoirs. The Data below is over a couple years old and could be slightly different.

Wow CYANIDE was 80ppb!
