MDWASD - Needs Assessment Program

The Miami-Dade Water and Sewer Department (MDWASD) engaged BND ENGINEERS INC. to  develop a Comprehensive Water/Wastewater Needs Assessment Program to identify, prioritize, track and coordinate water and sewer improvement projects within the public right-of-way that may be triggered by certain DEFICIENCIES, such as undersized water mains, low pressure, no potable water service, health and safety issues and the Federal and County INITIATIVES which include, Quality  Neighborhood Improvements Bond Program (QNIBP), Infill Housing Initiative (IHI), Federal Designated Empowerment Zones, Brownfields Program, Office of Community and Economic Development (OCED), and Miscellaneous Commission Requested Projects.

Comprised of:

The improvements center on areas of re-development and urban revitalization as well as commercial and/or Industrial areas for maximum economic stimulation.  The information collected from various County Departments, Municipalities and the State of Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) was utilized to develop preliminary engineering details and planning capital costs for the identified improvement work within the MDWASD service areas.

 

Program priorities, potential funding sources and meetings with County Management, the Mayor’s office and Commissioners to present findings, gather input and address funding issues are also included in the project’s Scope of Work.  A computer database for identifying, prioritizing, and tracking identified projects was developed by BND ENGINEERS INC.
