It is important to know that although the Miami-Dade County Water and Sewer Department (WASD) provides potable water and sewer services to City residents, the City of Doral is the entity in charge of the publicly owned stormwater infrastructure in the City. As part of the Billing of Stormwater Charges Agreement between the Miami-Dade County and the City of Doral, WASD bills on behalf of the City, $4.00 per month to each residential unit and $4.00 per 1548 SF of the total impervious area to each commercial property. The money collected by WASD is then returned to the City and used to maintain, operate and improve the stormwater infrastructure including the regional stormwater system of canals and culverts, as well as catch basins, connection piping and french drains on public Rights-of-Way.

What is Stormwater ???
WHY DOES IT MATTER?… CAUSE AND EFFECT…
The results of unclean stormwater runoff dischargs in the loss of flora, fauna and the pollution of our water resources!!!
HOW TO PROTECT STORMWATER QUALITY AND DRAINAGE INFRACTRUCTURE….
Without maintenance, the stormwater drainage system would have very short useful life. This will result in costly repairs or potential replacement of whole system and subsequent FLOODING!!!!
Do not treat your drainage system like a garbage disposal. Keep ditches, swales, drainage grates and retention lakes clear of debris, trash and other discarded material.
Proper use of Pesticides, Herbicides, and Fertilizers
Support your required funding for proposed flood control solution. Long term fixes require long-term financial commitments.
