Winson Water Plant pumps ground water from the Biscayne Aquifer. It treats the water through aeration, chemical processing and filtering. Then through a vast underground distribution system, the plant delivers clean and safe potable water to our customers.
The plant is capable of supplying 9.3 million gallons a day (MGD) of water to consumers, but on average produces 8.7 MGD. This is about 60% of the total demand which is approximately 13.5 MGD. The other 40% of the demand is supplemented by water purchased from Miami-Dade County Water and Sewer Department, through several interconnects in the distribution system.
The Water Plant is a 24 hour operation, staffed by State licensed professionals in water treatment. They also handle all non police emergency calls that occur after regular business hours, dispatch the proper personnel as needed, and monitor all of the City’s sewer lift stations, by means of telemetry.
For emergencies after hours, holidays and or on weekends, you will need to call 305-953-2854. Please fill out the After Hours Customer Survey.
