The Village purchases its water primarily from Miami-Dade County. As a consecutive water purveyor, the Division is responsible for ensuring the water distribution system can provide potable water for drinking and fire suppression. Water quality is attained through a functional distribution system where routine maintenance is frequently performed.
Water consumption is measured through water metering, and the meters are read every month. There are two primary uses for water that is purchased by Village residents:
- Domestic water (drinking water supplied to the house)
- Irrigation water (water supplied to the irrigation system)
Domestic water meter charges are accompanied with a sewer charge. The sewer charge is calculated based off of the water that is consumed through the domestic water meter.
Irrigation water meters are primarily used for irrigation systems. There is no sewer charge for irrigation meters because the water does not make its way into the sewer system. Irrigation systems are required to have a certified backflow preventer to protect the water distribution system from a non-potable water source.
