The City of Miami Springs released a statement regarding heavy duty dump trucks that will be entering in and exiting out of the city over the next 6 months. Specifically, the trucks will be entering the city along Ludlam to Dove Avenue to the “Clay Pits” across from the high school, managed by Miami-Dade Water and Sewer.
The “Clay Pits” are also known as known by the less attractive name, the Miami Springs sludge lagoon. As the name implies, sludge byproduct from the Water Treatment plant in Hialeah is pumped into the sludge lagoon. About every 10 years, some of that byproduct buildup is removed via the heavy dump trucks. No word on where the byproduct is dumped?
According to the City of Miami Springs, the dump trucks will be operating from 7am to 3pm Mondays through Thursdays.
